Review: Green Kitty

on August 21, 2013


Book Blurb:

“Green Kitty” is a children’s book that was written to help explain dementia/Alzheimer’s diseased for the unique age group of 8-12 year olds and it’s the only book for that age level available. It has placed as a finalists twice as entertaining children’s fiction; USA Book News “Best Books 2011” and “International Book of the Year 2012”
The story revolves around a grandchild visiting a grandmother recently placed in assisted living in the early stages of her illness and helpful information is deftly woven into the story line. Reviewers have said that it’s a book for all ages and shows what true family love is all about. What I have loved most is the emails from families telling me how it helped their children understand what is going on with their grandparents.

About the Author: A mother, nurse and author who loves to read, Alexandra began writing in 1985. She has written three very different books since then: an instructional manual for a massage class, a nonfiction account of her nursing experiences, and this children’s book. Her fondest memories of being a young mother are of reading books out loud to her son. Dementia is a cause close to her heart because her mother and others in her family have suffered with the disease. Alexandra is pictured above at the age of eight with her first dog, Princess.

My thoughts:

This was a great book. I really enjoyed it. On top of being entertaining (it had me giggling a few times), it gives good advice for kids dealing with relatives who have Dementia. It explains the disease simply, so kids can understand it and what they can do to help. It’s full of fun animal stories and facts thrown into the mix as well, which will keep kids entertained and educates them.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
