    Ihanan suloisesti (ei-ällöpupusesti) kuvitettu kirja vanhuudesta ja sen aiheuttamista muutoksista.Näitä on tullut myös kotimaisilta kirjailijoilta - hyvinkin vaihtelevalla näkökulmalla ja hurjin tasoeroin.Leijonavaari muistaa huonosti asioita, sotkee ja käyttäytyy välillä kurjasti tai naurettavasti. Yhdessä eläinporukka opettaa nuorisoa ja pikkuleijonaa, kuinka asioita voi helpottaa. Vanhojen aikojen muistelu avaa nuorille vanhusten menneisyyttä ja heidän tekemiään kepposia. Yht [...]

    While I appreciate what this book is trying to do, and could help a child dealing with a grandparent who has dementia/Alzheimers better understand, I am concerned about how the issue is addressed in this story. I have been taught, while learning about the disease my grandmother is dealing with, that it can cause more confusion/frustration to ask someone "Do you remember?" about life events they may no longer remember.

The illustrations are beautiful and the story is sure to become a favourite with young readers. Such a lovely way to expl [...]

    Lenny loves his granpa, who is the King Lion. Lenny starts to notice that granpa forgets things and tires easily. It is a story about the tragic disease of dementia and the abiding bond between children and grandparents. Could be used as bibliotherapy for children trying to understand dementia.

  • Mary

    This would be a good book to share with really young kids to gently explain to them why their loved ones who are stricken with Alzheimer's or dementia act the way they do.

  • Judy

    Grandpa Lion is losing his memory.

  • Felita

    Oh, this was a sweet book. The young cub notices that his grandfather, the King Lion, doesn't remember things like he used to. In fact, he fears that the King brain is muddled.
