From Child’s Play (2017), “She is passionate about using children's books as a gentle tool to bridge discussion about parts of life that may be foreign and not easily understood and she hopes the pages of Grandma help families learn together and connect more deeply.”

Entry Part 1: Grandma is a must-read for any child who is going through family changes. The beginning introduces the positive aspects of being close to family members, while the middle slowly incorporates a healthy changing process. Children who have experienced grandparents transitioning into a nursing home can connect with Oscar. Interactions, visitations, and communication strategies are shown throughout the plot so that children can see that everything works out in the end. Even if students cannot connect to a specific grandparent transitioning into a nursing home, students can connect to the message of adjusting to new circumstances. Dementia can be a hard topic to explain to children. Grandma explains the struggles, the positives, and the harder aspects of visiting a grandparent in a nursing home. The conclusion of the book has resources to explain dementia such as definitions, visiting, what happens when we get old,
