Kids Books

Grandpa’s Great Escape–David Walliams

Given the title of this book I thought it would be far more fun than it was. It was actually kind of terrifying for kids I think. Or at least for the 4 year old I read it to.

I had to keep editing a little because it deals with Alzheimers and really rough treatment of such patients. (Only because the operators of the facility were evil.)

I would like to see a book for kids where caretakers or nurses in this situation weren’t portrayed as evil. That would be nice.

Overall, this was a good book to learn about what is happening to your grandparent/loved one and helped explain Alzheimers in a nice and thoughtful way for the most part. That aspect wasn’t too scary. So if that runs in your family or you are having a hard time explaining to your kids, this might help.

Or make it worse. Depends on the kid, I suspect.

I didn’t like it that much. But, hello, not my age group.
