Alzheimer's disease is a progressive brain disorder that was first described by the German physician Alois Alzheimer in 1906. It destroys brain cells and gets worse over time, causing memory loss and problems with thinking and behavior. It is a human tragedy for millions of elderly people and their families, and certainly difficult to explain to young children. This touching story addresses that challenge by revealing how one little girl comes to understand and live with her grandfather having Alzheimer's disease.
