Themes: Loss, Change, & Family

A little girl is building a miniature city made out of popsicle sticks with her Grandfather. However, her grandpa keeps hiding the sticks around the house. She soon learns that it isn’t a silly game her and her grandpa are playing, but instead he’s forgetting where he puts the sticks down. This leaves her confused and upset as she tries to understand what’s wrong with her grandpa and does her best to help. The story is meant to teach children about the affects of memory-based diseases that may affect those we love. The main themes of the book are understanding change and family. It based off my own experiences caring for my grandfather.
