Grandpa Monty is a bit confused: he puts the chicken in the washing machine, he gets towels mixed up with napkins and gloves with socks, and he s always forgetting his grandson s name. Luckily, his grandson loves him very much and is willing to risk getting into a little trouble to try to help him remember. Discussing Alzheimer s and dementia, this charming story will help both children and parents cope with tough changes in a family. Offering up humor and the potent power of a smile, the book reminds readers of any age that when someone in the family is having trouble remembering things, the most valuable lesson is to not forget the importance of loving him. El abuelo Pedro esta un poco confundido: pone el pollo en la lavadora, confunde las toallas con las servilletas y los guantes con las medias y a cada rato se le olvida el nombre de su nieto. Afortunadamente, su nieto lo ama mucho y esta dispuesto a arriesgarse a meterse en problemas para ayudarlo a recordar. Discutiendo los temas del Alzheimer y la demencia, esta encantadora historia ayudara tanto a ninos como a sus padres a lidiar con cambios dificiles dentro de la familia. Ofreciendo humor y el poder de una sonrisa, el libro le recuerda a los lectores de todas las edades que cuando alguien en la familia esta teniendo dificultades recordandose de algo, la leccion mas valiosa es no olvidar la importancia de amarlo."
