By Max Wallack
Puzzles to Remember
Dr. Santulli has appraised the book as, "A Terrific New Book For Children."
Here is the content of his review:
"Max Wallack, creator of "Puzzles to Remember", and Carolyn Given have written a new book for young children about Alzheimer's disease. It is clear, well written, with wonderful illustrations. It explains the symptoms of the disease in language that children can understand; shows both the love and occasional frustration and anger that a young child can feel towards a grandmother with the disease, and even talks about the importance of participating clinical trials. I would recommend it highly for any child who must face this disease in a grandparent or other relative. Fifty percent of the book's proceeds will support Alzheimer's research and the care of Alzheimer's patients."
We thank Dr. Santulli for taking his time to review this book, and we hope the book will help many families who are dealing with this disease. You can order the book here:
