  About The Book

Kate has always enjoyed her grandfather's storytelling, but lately he seems different; he is repeating the same stories and asking her the same questions again and again. When one day Grandpa forgets Kate's name, Kate decides to talk to her mother, who explains that he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Although it is devastating for Kate and her family to watch Grandpa suffer, Kate realizes that she can help him by talking with him and by working with him to create a photo album of his past. In doing so, Kate forms a bond with him she knows she will never forget.

As she's done so successfully in her previous children's books, Maria Shriver presents a timely, touching story that inspires, guides, and educates--and encourages readers to open their eyes to the memories and the love that our elderly loved ones have to offer.


Maria Shriver is an award-winning journalist, and the author of five bestselling books, And One More Thing Before You Go, What's Heaven?, Ten Things I Wish I'd Known--Before I Went Out into the Real World, What's Wrong with Timmy?, and What's Happening to Grandpa?. She and her husband live in California with their four children, Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher.
