Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From New York Times bestselling author Maria Shriver comes a poignant and compassionate story about one family coping with Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.

Kate has always adored her grandpa's storytelling — but lately he's been repeating the same stories again and again. One day, he even forgets Kate's name. Her mother's patient explanations open Kate's eyes to what so many of the elderly must confront: Alzheimer's disease and other forms of memory loss. Determined to support her grandfather, Kate explores ways to help him — and herself — cope by creating a photo album of their times together, memories that will remain in their hearts forever. With special insight derived from her own father's struggle with Alzheimer's, Maria Shriver offers a touching and optimistic story that encourages awareness, acceptance, and dialogue among family and friends.

Review:

"Shriver's succinct explanation of the condition...the examples of conversations that could easily be emulated by adults and children, as well as Kate's loving project...make this a book that will appeal to an audience across generations." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Maria Shriver comes a poignant and compassionate story about one family coping with Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.

Synopsis:

A young boy helps his beloved grandmother remember an important family story

Tosh loves listening to Grandma Honey tell family stories. His favorite is about the special tea cakes that smell like vanilla and sunshine. They were great-great-great-great-grandma Ida's specialty when she was a cook in the big house of a plantation. Unlike Tosh, the slave children weren't allowed to have any of the treats, though Grandma Ida always found a way to put the sugary sweetness into their hands anyway. It was a promise and taste of freedom to come.

Tosh knows this is an important story and he takes care to remember every word. And when grandma Honey begins to forget, he can return the gift of tea cakes and stories. A touching family tale, Tea Cakes for Tosh celebrates the important bond between grandchild and grandparent and the stories that make a family strong.

Synopsis:

With special insight that derives from her own father's struggle with Alzheimer's Disease, Shriver offers a touching and optimistic story that encourages awareness, acceptance, and dialogue with family and friends. Full color.
