A child's love for a grandmother with memory loss shines through in this deeply personal and lyrical tale from author Reeve Lindbergh.
Sometimes Tom's grandmother forgets the way home from the market, or that Tom's name is Tom and not Roy. But Tom doesn t mind. He loves to help his grandmother and just spend time with her. The special bond between a beloved grandmother affected by memory loss and her devoted grandson is described in Reeve Lindbergh's most personal book for children, one that is based on her own and her son's relationship with her mother in the last years of her life. Kathryn Brown's watercolor illustrations tenderly capture the unique characters and the love that is universal.
