Kathryn Harrison – Weeds in Nana’s Garden
“As with any great story, it stays with you long after you turn the final page.” Amazon Reviewer
Following the special bond between a grand-daughter and her Nana, this colorful and captivating book will help readers better understand Alzheimer’s Disease & other dementias. A young girl and her Nana spend much time together in Nana’s magical garden. Then one day, the girl discovers that her Nana has Alzheimer’s Disease. Over several years, her Nana declines, but the girl learns to accept the changes, and takes over as the garden’s caregiver.
Extending from my personal experience with my mother’s dementia, I created this book to support families and spread understanding of these brain diseases. My young daughter made the clever connection that inspired the story, remarking that like the weeds taking over the flowers in her Nana’s beautiful garden, the disease was taking over her Nana’s brain.
Using poignant illustrations, filled with flowers and fairies, to portray the tender story, this book gently explains these brain diseases while engaging children. It also includes a Question & Answer section. Plus each purchase supports the Alzheimer Society of Canada, an organization that supported me greatly during our family’s dementia journey.
