Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525461205, Hardcover)In this heartfelt, beautifully told story, a young girl comes to see the comfort of traditions after a loved one has died.
Chloe doesn't want to go to Grandpa's for Christmas now that Grandma won't be there to share her warm hugs, delicious cocoa, and handmade thingamajigs, the ornaments she crafted for Chloe each year. Christmas will not be the same, so Chloe would rather not have it at all. Her grandfather's gentle encouragement and a last gift from Grandma show Chloe the bittersweetness of memories and traditions, and how they help you "face the new things," the things you have to make up as you go along.

When Chloe and her parents visit her grandfather the Christmas after her grandmother's death, she finds it hard that the adults seem to want everything to be the same, when she misses her grandmother, the holiday times they spent together, and the special ornaments she always made.
