The illustrations were absolutely delightful.

It was a good idea, but those stains and spots were a special remembrance of the years the family had come together to "celebrate many happy occasions."
D. Fowler
Sylvia Rouss captures that perfectly in her newest book.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Amy's smile broadened as she rushed up the stairs to visit her grandmother. Her blue eyes twinkled as she hugged Grandma tight and exclaimed, "I got the part of the princess in the school play!" Amy would need some material for a costume and after she scouted out some material in Grandma's sewing cabinet, she came back to find a snack waiting for her. A "glass of chocolate milk and a plateful of cookies" were as perfect as the pink flowered material she found. Oddly enough, that beautiful material was somehow familiar... it was the same pattern that covered Grandma's dining room chairs.

There was only one difference and that was that the "cushions were faded and worn and covered with stains." Perhaps that was a big difference and Amy thought that it might be time to make "new seat covers" for those chairs that had "lots of stains and worn spots." Amy's red ponytails bobbed and she smiled at Grandma and waited for her reaction. It was a good idea, but those stains and spots were a special remembrance of the years the family had come together to "celebrate many happy occasions." Just what were those occasions that would make those threadbare cushions worth saving?

This is a charming story of Amy and how she learns about her Grandma's cherished memories. Of course not all memories are easily seen, especially when they come in the form of stains and spots. The story, which many families can relate to, wind around those fond memories that sometimes come from things you would nominate as least memorable. In this story Amy learns about those special times Grandma cherished were in her heart and in those cushions. The artwork is simple, yet very appealing.

As grandparents ourselves, it is particularly meaningful to us to fnd a book which teaches valuable life lessons in such a gentle and wholesome way for our own six grandchildren. The illustrations were absolutely delightful. May there be others like this to follow.
