Grandma's Gloves

Grandma's Gloves

What do you remember the most about someone you loved who has passed on? This young girl holds onto the wonderful memories of all the times she spent with her grandmother. She knows exactly what her grandmother smells like, coffee and hairspray and perfume and earth. She smells like earth because Grandma loves to work in her garden and talk to her flowers. She always has time to sit and listen to her granddaughter and to share her special treats, homemade doughnuts and jasmine tea. These are the unique things that "are" her grandmother and that they shared with each other. There's great love here and when Grandma has to go into the hospital and doesn't smell like herself anymore, there is such a sense of loss. Then, the phone call comes and Grandma is truly gone. Left behind though are the warm memories of time in the garden and this little girl and her mother will keep Grandma's memory alive as they create their own garden together. A poignant and validating read for children who have lost a beloved grandparent. 32 pages Ages 4-9
