The Little Word Catcher (Second Story Press), Danielle Simard’s warm and compassionate story, portrays Elise’s confusion over her Grandma’s memory loss. Grandma has more and more trouble remembering words and Elise wants to help her find them. Are the words lost? Did they get old and worn out? The story shows the confusion and sadness a family feels when a relative has Alzheimer’s, and presents metaphors and coping strategies that a young child can understand. Illustrations by Geneviève Côté. (Ages 4-8) mRb

Annie Murray is a Montreal librarian.
