About the Book
Special Secret Hearts: A Child's Introduction to Dementia is the story of Johnny, a little boy who thinks his grandmother doesn't love him anymore. Young children, aged 3 to 7, are introduced, in a comforting way, to dementia and the effect it can have on an elderly loved one. Dementia impacts not only the individual, but all family members.

Pink Curls: A Santa Claus Story is a happy, old-fashioned tale about Santa and Mrs. Santa making toys for children. Based on a bedtime story told by Georgette Tarnow's mother, Violette Tarnow, it explains how an accident made it possible to fulfill one little girl's Christmas wish.

Violette Tarnow suffered from dementia for the last 20 years of her life. Georgette Tarnow wrote about her mother and dementia in her caregiving book, When Your Parent Becomes Your Child: Advice for Caregivers…from a Daughter Who Spent 23 Years Dealing with Aging and Dementia. Just as that book was written to help caregivers cope, Special Secret Hearts is designed to help parents explain the effects of Alzheimer's and dementia to their children. Pink Curls serves to remind us that dementia victims were once intelligent, creative individuals who deserve our continued respect.

Drawings by Violette Tarnow's great-grandchildren, Ethan Lapitan and Alana Lapitan. Each page is illustrated with a black and white sketch.
