Today I’d like to introduce you to a brand new book written by resilience author Karen Tyrell.


Jackie’s Review


Harry Helps Grandpa Remember

Written by Karen Tyrrell

Illustrated by Aaron Pocock

Published by Digital Future Press

ISBN: 9780987274083

9780987274083Harry Helps Grandpa Remember is about the special love between a little boy and his grandpa who has Alzheimer’s. Harry will do ANYTHING to help his grandpa remember. A heart-warming story, full of humour and HOPE.

When Harry notices that his grandpa is becoming forgetful he comes up with strategies to help him.

First Harry writes him a diary to help him remember the chores he must do on the farm.

Next he fishes out an old photo album to help him remember forgotten memories.

Harry walks with Grandpa through the farm as fresh air and exercise have been shown to be a helpful therapy.

Playing Grandpa’s favourite music also brought back memories and made Grandpa happy. And there’s one final strategy that I’ll let you discover when you read the story for yourself.

The book is vibrantly illustrated by Aaron Pocock and includes notes for teachers and families at the end.

  1. Hi Jackie, Thanks so much for reviewing Harry Helps Grandpa Remember in such a positive way. I really appreciate your kind support… Cheers, Karen Tyrrell 🙂

  2. As the population is ageing & as people are living longer than ever before, dementia is becoming one of the biggest global health challenges facing our generation. A global epidemic if you will. There are countless statistics on dementia, but behind these statistics are individuals, someone’s brother, mother, grandfather, neighbour etc., many with the day to day challenges dementia raises. Karen takes a serious subject & makes the information more personalised & more accessible. The book covers a range of dementia issues, & uses easy terminology to reach a younger audience. It is an uplifting story that provides a better understanding of dementia.
