Written by: Max Wallack & Carolyn Given

On some days, seven-year old Julie feels like she’s living in a Fun House. Hers is a topsy-turvy world where the toaster sprouts a toothbrush, and a watermelon gets dressed up in pink underpants for Fourth of July! But on other days, Julie struggles with understanding why her why Grandma can’t remember her name. Julie is struggling with understanding her grandmother’s Alzheimer’s disease. Authors Max Wallack and Carolyn Given believe that no child is too young to learn about this disease, or how to participate in providing safe care for their loved one. Why Did Grandma Put Her Underwear in the Refrigerator? is a sensitive, light-hearted children’s story that seamlessly provides its young readers with a toolbox to help them overcome their fears and frustrations. It shares easy-to-understand explanations of what happens inside the brain of Alzheimer’s patients and how to cope with gradual memory loss. This 40-page fully illustrated children’s book is told from a second-grader’s perspective, style and vocabulary, but it lovingly shares real strategies, scientific insights and lessons of dignity from which adult caregivers may also benefit. Max and Carolyn have created a book that is a necessity for the millions of children and grandchildren who are currently dealing with this incurable disease. *Fifty percent of this book’s proceeds will support Alzheimer’s research and the care of Alzheimer’s patients.
