The Remember Balloons

Cover: 'The Remember Balloons'

Staff Review: "The Remember Balloons" by Jessie Oliveros


James is a little boy whose memories are represented by balloons, as are Grandpa's memories.  James loves talking to Grandpa and sharing balloons.  But one day, Grandpa doesn't have as many balloons, and his favorite balloon, the silver balloon is floating above his head.  James questions why the balloons are floating away.  This is such an amazing story to explain Alzheimer's Disease to children.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction
