I read this for the "A Character Who Is A Senior" part of my 2020 reading challenge. Simply illustrated, it was a touching story of a child collecting memories to help his elderly friend. ( )

Just a kind and lovely story. A young child is friends with elderly people. When he is told that one of his favorite people can't remember things he works hard to help her find her memories. This sweet story would be great to use with K up to even 4th grade depending on how the story is being used.

This was a really sweet tale about getting older and losing memories and finding a way to bring them back. Some of the ideas will be a bit advanced for younger readers - but perfect for adults! And younger children will enjoy the illustrations and adventure. ( )
