Format: Paperback
This book shows a wonderful heart filled story about a loving relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter. When the granddaughter goes over to visit her grandmother after every visit her grandmother takes her into her bedroom and gives her something special to remember her by. When the granddaughter was younger they would bake cookies and go shopping together. Now that she is growing up and the grandmother is getting older she is beginning to forget things. The granddaughter gives her something special so that she will never forget her.
This book tells us that there are special gifts that can be given but the greatest gift is the gift of love. This book is a celebration of love, memories, and a relationshp of special people.
The book inspires us all both young and old to treasure the memories and the special people we hold in our hearts. It's the little things that bring warm smiles and hearts full of love.

Format: Paperback
This book shows the warm relationship of a grandmother and granddaughter. Even the ordinary seems like a special treat with Grandma. When it's time for the granddaughter to leave, the grandmother ends each visit with a trip to the cedar chest at the foot of her bed. She pulls out "something to remember me by". Years pass, time takes its toll, and the grandmother fears she can no longer remember well enough. The granddaughter discovers the true treasures her grandmother left. Reading this book is like stepping into my grandmother's kitchen because she also left behind a treasure chest of memories.

This book is GOOD! One of my friends told me about it, and I can't believe what a special treasure she passed along to me. I am a grandmother, and this story perfectly captured the relationship between my granddaughter and me. It will teach any grandmother, new or old, what this relationship is all about and how important it is. There is also a "how to" book that sort of goes along with it called "How to Build the Grandma Connection" (also by Susan V. Bosak). It should be required reading for any grandmother (and grandfather!) out there. Both books make a great package. Highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover
My 92 year old Grandmother and I have the relationship that was written about. When I read this book it touched my heart deeply and brought back so many feelings about my Grandma. She recently was moved to a Nursing Home and for the first time this last visit she did not know me. This book helped me realize that just because she may not know who I am, I'll never forget who "I" am and how important she was in making me the person I am today. I took this book and shared it with her although I am not sure she understood it. I had her to write a message in the book and sign it with her famous "Granny" scribble so that I can cherish this story and someday share it with my grandchildren that I hope to have. When they look at me in wonder about why I let have anything they want at the store or why I let them have my complete attention, I'll share this special book with them. I think all chldren should have grandmothers like the one in the story.

Format: Hardcover
"Something To Remember Me By" will be a Christmas gift for my oldest granddaughter. Kayla will open her gift to find this wonderful book and a little butterfly pin of mine that she has admired. Reading "Something..." inspired me to put together a memorable gift for a special grandchild from her doting grandmother. Grandmothers, everywhere, will love this beautifully told story that touches on the essence of a grandmother/granddaughter relationship. Thank you, Susan, for my children's book of the year. My heart was touched by your words, and I've shared your story with my friends.

My granddaughter and I share a Birthday. There was an article about "Something to Remember Me By" and the success it has achieved in our local paper. I guess great minds really do think alike, as both myself and my granddaughter thought what a perfect and wonderful gift it would be. We both ended up giving it to each other on our shared Birthdays. You should have seen our surprised faces when we realized the coincidence.
This book IS perfect for giving to children and adults. I've recommended it to several of my friends and I always hear great praise back for what a wonderful little book it is.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely loved this book. I have read it and read it. I am a woma in my 50s and my grandmothers are no longer living, but they had a big impact upon my childhood. There memories and special to me. This book helps you remember why these memories are so special.
I work as the Activities Assistant in a Care and Rehad center for the elderly. I have read this book to them many times and they all tell me they like the book. It has a very poignant message however, but sooner or later we all need to face the passing of the generation. But as someone has said, if they live in our memories they never die. That is the ultimate message of this book
