This wonderful children’s book will delight young ones, parents, and grandparents alike. The walk-down-memory lane tale opens with Lucy asking her Granddad, “Why doesn’t your skin fit you any more? It’s all crinkly.”
Adults will smile. Children will be curious to hear the answer.
Through beautiful illustrations and carefully crafted words, Lucy learns that Granddad has a special memory for each and every one of his wrinkles. Lucy loves to hear about special memories about Granddad marrying Lucy’s Grandma, the day Lucy’s mom was born, and the day that Lucy came into Granddad’s life. One by one, Lucy points to a wrinkle, and, without even a pause, Granddad happily obliges with a story.
This is a special story about the love between a little girl and her grandfather, but it also teaches children about the value of memories and the love family members have for each other.
What Kaitlyn (age 5) Liked:
- The nice pictures
- When Granddad was remembering the time when Lucy’s mom fell into the toy box
- When Granddad was remembering about Lucy being born
