Blimmin' Koro: Kātahi rā, e Koro e!
- About the Book
Kotuku notices her grandfather is becoming forgetful. He hides things around the house and has trouble talking. Is Koro sick?
Step by step, Kotuku and her whanau learn about dementia and help Koro to adjust to the changes in his life.
This bilingual story tells the story Koro’s changes and how his family adapt to look after him. What doesn’t change is their unwavering love for their grandad.
Trish Bowles’ watercolour illustrations sensitively trace the family’s journey and help show dementia doesn’t mean the end of life.
