Anna and Joey learn of their grandfather's passing one morning. The children and adults deal with their grief in very different, yet equally effective ways. Anna gets an idea to write down all the things she would love to have done with her Poppy one more time.
Both the mother's and children's perspective are well represented in the story, making the book great for all ages. I found myself tearing up at the beauty and simplicity of the children's idea. This book serves as a great reminder of how the simple things are often the most important.

Readers will enjoy the cover picture of Poppy wearing his silly birthday hat with a cardboard candle sticking out of the top of it, and the gentle gouache and watercolor pencil illustrations which follow the flow of the text. This would be very helpful and comforting to use with children who have lost a grandparent or other loved one. They will be encouraged to think of their own memories of those dear to them, and will realize that they will always have those memories in their heart. For ages 6 - 10. Reviewed by Andrea Davidson
