"Sweet, Sweet Memory" is about a little girl named Sarah whose grandfather has just passed away. This story shows the process of Sarah grieving over her loss and how she ends up finding the closure and comfort she needs. Her family ends up comforting her with all of the happy memories they have of him and she ends up telling them her positive stories too. Even though he has passed, his legacy still lives on through the positive impact he had on people. This book is great for children to read because it introduces them to the subject of losing a loved one. This story is a good reminder for children that loss in inevitable, but what's important is to remember the happiness that the person put out into the world. ( )

This story is about a young girl, Sarah, whose grandfather has passed away. As the family grieves together, they share their sweet memories of the grandfather. Although Sarah misses her grandfather, she cherishes the time she has had with him and the memories that she will keep with her forever. He may be gone, but the memories will live forever. I loved this story, it is something anyone who has lost a loved one can connect to. The illustrations are absolutely stunning. Floyd Cooper has done a beautiful job making these realistic pictures that brought the story to life. The death of the loved one is not easy, but this story shows the reader to cherish the memories and the mark that person left in your life. As always, Jacqueline Woodson has done a wonderful job! ( )

Story of loss of a loved grandparent and the sweet memories that remain. A book that is full of grief and love and life. Illustrations resemble paintings of photographs adding to the feel of this story about the circle of life and how life goes on. ( )

A little girl's grandpa dies and her family gathers for the funeral and to remember their lost loved one. The girl is surrounded by her family and listens to them as they recall their favorite memories. The little girl does not want to share a memory, but when pressed she opens up and shares. This book does a good job showing children how various people handle death. This book is easily relatable for children. ( )
