September 2022

World Alzheimer's Month takes place in September and is a global opportunity to raise awareness about dementia. Picture books - and stories like The Forgettery - can be a gentle way to open up discussions about memory loss and dementia with young readers.

This month, I'll be sharing play-based activities about making and treasuring our memories:
