My Thoughts:
I read this book as part of the 2012 ebook challenge. Sarah the little fairy: Grandma gets lost! is an educational story that parents can read to their children about people who have Alzheimer's Disease. It helps the children understand Alzheimer's and identify more with family members that might have the disease. The story in this book is cute, and simply explains the disease. Even a child as young as four can understand the explanation. The illustrations are very well done. The illustration of the black Alzheimer's stone eating the spoon in the star/nueron made it even easier to understand what Alzheimer's does. I liked that after consulting Mina, Sarah's fairy, Sarah is intellegent enough to find out where her grandma went and find her. The only thing I wish the author would have explained in more detail is the fairy part, and how Mina turned Sarah into a fairy. This is a great book for parents to read to their children and discuss with them. This book is sold in English, Spanish, and many other languages.

I give Sarah, the little fairy: 3/5.
