Tank is a dog. But he is a very special dog. You see, Tank is a therapy dog. He visits people in nursing homes and brightens their day.
Author Tank Shick is such a dog, and this is his story. In his book, Tank Tales—A Nursing Home Visit, he prepares children to visit a grandparent or other loved one with dementia living in a nursing home. You’ll learn what a nursing home looks like and ways to deal with seeing a loved one who has trouble remembering things.
Some children may think nursing homes are scary things, but Tank shows that’s not the case. They help children’s loved ones live safely and happily.
