Called a book for all ages, Green Kitty was written for children ages 8 to 12 to help explain Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and is both entertaining and educational. It was a finalist for both USA Book News "Best Books 2011" and "International Book of the Year 2012" in children's fiction, and is filled with true, laugh-out-loud animal antics. Green Kitty will please any child who loves their pets and parents will enjoy reading it out loud to younger children.
It is a collection of stories within a story with a grandmother that recalls old anecdotes, mostly about family pets, for a visiting grandchild. The grandmother has recently been placed into assisted living due to her dementia and their bond grows stronger through the visits despite the illness. Helpful information about Alzheimer’s disease is deftly woven into the work.
Green Kitty will capture the imagination of both boys and girls. Overall the books shows what true family love is all about.
