In working with his 86-year-old mother, who was in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s
disease, author Eliezer Sobel discovered something astounding. Although she could not
speak full sentences or follow a story line, his mother could read, and would sit in rapt
attention as she paged through magazines and coffee-table books. That is why he wrote
Blue Sky, White Clouds. A simple picture book with large, easy-to-read type, this is a
perfect fit for any loved one who has Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Eliezer Sobel is the author of Minyan: Ten Jewish Men in a World That Is Heartbroken, which won the prestigious Peter Taylor Prize for the Novel. He also wrote the memoir The 99th Monkey: A Spiritual Journalist’s Misadventures.
