Product description


"This story is very simple and sweet; it teaches children about dementia while also teaching them to help people. The illustrations within the story were beautiful, and bursting with color. It gave an actual feeling of being in a garden. It also gives very good detail on the progress of the garden, along with the increased need to assist Nana. At the end of the story, there were questions and answers to further educate the young reader about dementia and how it affects people differently. Great job by the author of this children's book; it was simple and easy to understand! I loved this story." 5 Stars, Tiffany Davis, Readers' Favorite

"Using the garden metaphor as a tool to illustrate the progression of dementia, this picturebook explains Alzheimer's disease to children in clear and sensitive terms. The book's young narrator asks questions of her mom that echo real-world concerns that many children have about a family member with dementia, guiding young readers through the delicate process of understanding brain disease. To further support families, the book also includes a helpful Q&A section that answers questions like: "Who gets dementia?" and "Is there any medicine to help?" Weeds in Nana's Garden is an excellent resource to rely upon when discussing dementia with children, and it is a welcome addition to any library or classroom collection." Highly Recommended, Chloe Humphreys, CM: Canadian Review of Materials.

"Dementia is a growing issue for families, young and old. It is often difficult for parents to talk about the disease with young children, yet Kathryn has managed to do so in an insightful and thoughtful way. I have worked in the dementia field for close to 20 years and think this book is a great tool to begin the conversation and increase children's knowledge of how to cope with the disease." Highly Recommended, Marija Padjen, B.S.W., M.S.W., Recognized expert in dementia programming.

About the Author

Canadian, Kathryn Harrison, holds an intriguing blend of science, marketing and art skills. In writing and illustrating the picture book, “Weeds in Nana’s Garden”, Kathryn has layered all these different abilities together. Stirred by her personal experience with her mother’s dementia, Kathryn created paintings and wrote this book to support families and spread awareness of Alzheimer's Disease and other dementia. Kathryn’s goal is always to create from the heart. She strives to do so from her studio in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, a small town just outside of Toronto, where she is continuously inspired by her kids, her cats and her colorful natural surroundings.
