Maria’s Grandma Gets Mixed Up
I know all of you look forward to when our favorite author discusses major social problems. This time Doris tackles Alzheimer’s disease. Given the destructive nature of Alzheimer’s, books geared to kids should be part of any collection plan. I think we can skip this one, though.
Maria’s grandmother is living with her family and she has memory problems and gets “mixed up”. Maria prays about it and then the book ends. Mostly it is a description of the grandmother’s “wacky” problems with dementia. I am still trying to figure out the picture with the giant hands…
Be sure to check on Doris’ other gems here in the Doris Hall of Infamy category! You won’t be disappointed.
