Ellie Gift Set book + puppet

ellie resourcesTalking to children about an emotive subject like dementia is not easy. I find that using an Ellie hand puppet to accompany telling The Forgetful Elephant story helps to hold children’s attention. It also helps to generate meaningful discussion. I’m now offering the Ellie Gift Set so the story explaining dementia can be told more effectively. It makes it easier to talk to young children about dementia and memory-loss conditions.
