Synopsis: What's a kid to do?

Eleven year-old Jake shares his story as he watches his grandma change from awesome traveller, bird watcher, and brownie-baker to someone who doesn't remember his name or where she lives.

Grandma is losing her memory because of Alzheimer's disease.

This sensitive story tackles a health challenge that affects so many people in today's world and gives families and children a unique opportunity. In reading What My Grandma Means to Say, they can explore the difficult subject of dementia at a safe distance from what may be happening to someone they know and about whom they care.

By following Jake as he finds out how to support his grandmother and himself, children and families build their own strengths and strategies for handling similar situations in their lives and in the lives of people they love.

The book also provides answers to frequently asked questions, plus a list of sources for further information to assist families and children in learning about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

For children in Grades 4-6.

About the Author: JC Sulzenko writes in a number of genres and creates poetry and stories for young and mature readers alike.

The Ottawa International Writers Festival and the Ottawa Public Library/Ottawa Children's Literature Round Table's Kid Galas have showcased her poetry and books for children. Her poems appear on-line and in a number of chapbooks and anthologies, and have been broadcast on radio and television.

JC distilled an incident from Jake's story in to a one-act play about dementia for children in grades 4,5, and 6, which carries the same title as this new storybook. What My Grandma Means to Say, the play, premiered at the Ottawa International Writer's Festival in October 2009. The Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County offers the play and its companion discussion guide as part of its youth education programs. An HD video of the play is in the works.

After the 2004 success of Fat poems Tall poems Long poems Small, an anthology of JC's poetry illustrated by thirteen Ottawa artists, came Boot Crazy in 2007, JC's fifth book for children. Her first story in rhyme is ideal for reading at home, at school, or at the library with three- to seven-year-olds.

JC is well known for the workshops she tailors for emerging and young writers from senior kindergarten to Grade 12. Her presentations have been included in programs offered by the Ottawa International Writer's Festival, the City of Ottawa, MASC, the Ottawa Public Library, the Canadian Authors Association (national conference), and Ottawa Independent Writers, to name a few. She served as poet-in-residence at Ottawa's School of Dance (2004), Alta Vista School (2006), and Rockcliffe Park Public School (2008). The Ottawa Kiwanis Club as featured her as a Read-a-thon author for many years. She also acts as a judge in poetry contests for youth. To assist in fundraising for charitable organizations, JC writes impromptu poetry at special events. She also gives dramatic readings of the play in schools and at community centres upon request.

JC lives in Ottawa.
