Full color by David Cunningham. When Grandfather learns that he has Alzheimer's disease, he tells his grandson that it's time to start a memory box.
"Upbeat, but also sensible and perceptive."
"Love and reassurance fill these pages--along with the sadness of loss and knowledge that there is more to come."
Zach is excited---three weeks of fishing Gramp's lake and eating Gram's cooking. Their first day together is so good, Gramps calls it a 'Memory Box' day. But Zach isn't prepared for the story about the memory box. It's a box to save the memories forever; and it's especially for Gramps because he has Alzheimer's disease. The three of them spend their days together filling the box, with new memories and old. And all three support each other, building strength to handle whatever comes.
When Gramps realizes he has Alzheimer's disease, he starts a memory box with his grandson, Zach, to keep memories of all the times they have shared.
