"Live and Learn " is a series of sensitively-written picture storybooks that take a child's point of view--especially the view of those kids who need encouragement in the face of some emotional or physical difficulty. In this story, a little boy and his sister are sad and occasionally confused as they recognize that their beloved grandfather has changed. He often forgets things--and sometimes he even forgets where he is. Mom explains to the kids that Grandpa is suffering from Alzheimer's. Before long, the children discover that Grandpa loves them as much today as he always has, and that they can still enjoy happy times together. Following the story are four pages of suggested activities that relate to its theme plus a two-page section that offers advice to parents. This and other " Live and Learn " titles are also available in Spanish language editions under the series title " Vive y aprende. "
