    1. Fini doesn't understand what's happening to her granny. She used to make a fuss over Fini's unusual hairdos, and they would always do grandmotherly things together, like walk to the pond to feed the ducks. Granny was an amazing cook. She liked to travel, and then make delicious exotic dishes for her family. But, after a trip to the hospital, everything changed. Now, Granny loves Fini's fun hairdos, and she would rather eat the breadcrumbs than feed them to the ducks. And, as for cooking, it's de [...]

    2. Fini loved being with her old Granny. They fed the ducks together and when Granny traveled, she’d send postcards. Granny made the BEST foods too. Granny went to the hospital and when she came back, she was “new Granny.” Now she does things like she wants to eat the bread that was for the ducks, she turns the stove on to warm her hands, not to cook, and she can’t travel. She has to move in with Fini and her parents because she needs to be watched now. Fini likes her new Granny, but she is [...]

    3. What a marvelous resource for parents looking for helping in explaining Alzheimer's. Fini's old granny never understood Fini's interesting hairstyle choices but she was a great cook and loved to travel sending Fini lots of postcards. Then came the day Granny went into the hospital and came outdifferent. "New" Granny adores Fini's hair and uses the stove, not to cook with, but to warm her hands. Fini's parents tell her that she must help keep track of Granny which Fini fails to do. Angry and frus [...]

She realistically captures Fini’s confusion about the changes that occur when her Granny is diagnosed with dementia. But Fini learns to love and accept the changes of her new Granny. With the growing number of older adults affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia, this is a helpful resource for children. The author is from Austria and the book has been translated into Eng [...]

    5. Fini's granny loves to travel and cook exotic dishes for her family. Then one day Granny changes. She stays home and doesn't do the things she used to. She moves in with Fini's family and they have to keep an eye on her. Granny has changed but they come to appreciate Granny as she is now. This is a sad book, but one that I am sure many families can relate to. I think it is a beautifully told and illustrated tale and will tug at your heart.

    6. What a simple but heartwarming story about helping a young child understand the changes an elderly grandparent may go through when suffering from an illness. Loved the simple text and the illustrations.

    7. Very unclear about her disability—since she went into hospital, wondering if she had a stroke? Dementia? Alzheimers? Text jumps around. Did enjoy the illustrations (especially searching for the mice) and the sepia-like tone of them.

    8. Touching story of a grandmother with dementia and how the family adjusts to having her live with them.
