Recent release “Why Doesn’t Grandpa Remember Me? A Children’s Book about Families Affected by Dementia” from Covenant Books author Robert Sky Allen, Ph.D., and illustrator Mark Grudzinski is a poignant and engaging story that explores a young boy’s relationship with his grandfather who has developed dementia.

Robert Sky Allen, Ph.D., a clinical therapist working in suburban Chicago who holds a Ph.D. in community psychology, and Mark Grudzinski, a graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago, have completed their new book, “Why Doesn’t Grandpa Remember Me?: A Children’s Book about Families Affected by Dementia”: a beautiful story of a young boy who is saddened when his grandfather no longer recognizes him due to dementia, but still finds ways to spend time with him.

“Kids understand more than we may think and often are wise beyond their years,” writes Allen. “When it comes to dealing with dementia, we likely can learn some valuable lessons from them. Children will be empowered to learn that they are part of the coping process just by being themselves.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Robert Sky Allen, Ph.D.’s new book is inspired by the author’s own experiences with his grandfather’s dementia, and his desire to help children understand the disease and how it affects their loved ones. Full of vibrant artwork by illustrator Mark Grudzinski that helps to convey Allen’s tale, young readers will have a better understanding of dementia and achieve a new perspective on the disease.
