What's Happening to Grandpa?

By Maria Shriver (Hardcover Book, 2004)
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.

  • Praise for What's Heaven*:
    "What's Heaven* is a tender, thoughtful treatment of a very emotional and difficult subject."
    -Sally Lee, Editor-in-Chief, Parents

    Praise for What's Wrong With Timmy*:
    "...One of the most important goals for our society must be tolerance, compassion and inclusion for everyone who is not 'normal.' Toward that end, Maria Shriver's simple narrative makes a valuable contribution."
    -Christopher Reeve

    "This book will help special needs children by making their world a kinder place, but it will help 'normal' children even more by expanding their souls and nourishing their sense of compassion."
    -Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
