An African American girl is transitioning from her grandfather's death. Her grandfather, while alive would grow plants. Now that he is gone, her relatives come to give condolences to remind her of her great grandfather. Now, she will grow plants like her grandfather. This becomes her sweet memory as the title of the book. A must read for K-3 grad because it has a point. Her grandfather dies, she is saddened a bit, but pulls her feet back up and works her way up again. ( )

This book is the greatest example of the oral tradition that I have ever read. I would read this book to kids to hammer home the importance of listening to the stories of older people around them. ( )

It is very difficult to write a childrens book about death and the greiving processs, but Woodson nails it with this one.

This story is about the life and death and continuance of life. The illustrations gives you a real feel of the sorrows and happiness that the text relays. This story would be great for children dealing with grief and in science to show that although people die, the memory continues, just as the food grows and are taken up then the seeds are replanted to start all over again.
