Grandma Lost Cuddles! is a heartwarming children's picture book written by Barbara Young with illustrations by Samiullah Sahito. The story is about Emmy, a cheerful young girl, and her grandma who has dementia and lives in a care home. One day, when Emmy visits her grandma with her mother, she finds her distressed and worried. Her grandma tells her that her Cuddles, a teddy bear that Emmy had gifted to her, has been taken away by another lady at the care home. Emmy wants to help her grandma and bring her joy but cannot seem to come up with a good plan. Join Emmy as she tries to find a way to make her grandma happy without hurting the other lady's feelings.

Grandma Lost Cuddles! is a beautiful and touching book that explores themes of love, kindness, and compassion. It is also an informative book that educates readers about dementia. I loved the relationship Emmy had with her grandma as it showcases special family bonds, and how simple acts of kindness can make a big difference in someone's life. Barbara Young has skillfully crafted this book, incorporating interactive activities and thought-provoking questions at the end. You and your loved ones can enjoy connecting the dots or matching emotions to faces. Finally, the beautiful illustrations perfectly complement the story and bring the characters to life. I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend sharing it with your children to teach them about dementia and valuable lessons about showing empathy and kindness.
