What Is Alzheimer's Disease?

Last week I read my mentor, Max Wallack's book: Why Did Grandma Leave Her Underwear In The Refrigerator? An Explanation About Alzheimer's Disease for Children It is based on my life with grandma, and Max's life with his great grams.The age group of my audience was 6-11 years of age.  They had many questions after I read the book.  One boy, who is quite smart, asked me the simple question: What causes Alzheimer's disease. Max's book gave a good example, but he wanted more information.  I searched the web, and found a great site: https://kidshealth.org/en/kids/alzheimers.html The answer to the boy's question was found at this site. In addition there are other common questions that kids have about Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. I will create a bibliography of helpful books for kids.  If you have a book or resource that you think is helpful please share it with me!
