Book Description

5 Aug 2004
'My Grandma's not the wrinkled kind; she's the special kind instead. She wears trainers with yellow laces and she laughs very loud. She remembers lots of things like milk carts and special songs. But some days, her remembering is not so good ...'As time passes, this little girl grows up and her grandma grows older. Even if at times coming to terms with Grandma's not remembering is difficult, there are still some very special things Grandma does remember - like how to make mile-high apple pie. And when Grandma suddenly can't remember who Margaret is for sure, Margaret reassures her: 'I am Margaret. I am your remembering.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 20 Nov 2011
By Justin
This book is a wonderful tale about a small girl and her grandmother who has dementia. The illustration are brilliant, and I struggled to read it without crying. It would be a good book for a child who is going through a similar situation. I thoroughly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Touching Story with Great Recipe! 11 Sep 2013
This is a wonderful book that I read to my 3 year old. She loved the story and we even made the recipe at the end for "Mile High Apple Pie". It was very yummy!
A great book for anyone trying to explain what's happening to an older person with Dementia or Alzheimer too.

5.0 out of 5 stars So touching 15 Jun 2012
By zannie
I think this book is beautifully written and illustrated. I just plucked it off the shelf in the library, having no idea what it was about. It is so heartfelt, insightful and gentle that I had tears in my eyes as I read it to my 3 year old. More people should know about this book. Hasn't it won awards?
