Dear Girl

An emotional and necessary tale about early-onset dementia to help kids understand the disease and to understand that even though their loved ones might not remember who they are, they still love them. For children ages 7 years and up.

Something is different about Grandpa. He forgets things very easily--he even forgets what simple words mean. Grandpa can remember a lot from his childhood, but his granddaughter, Cathy, knows that something is wrong. Join Cathy and her family as they learn about early-onset dementia and find things that Grandpa will hold dear, just like his dear girl, Cathy.
