Sweet book, fun to read and a great opener for conversation about aging and understanding memory issues. A compassionate portrayal of dementia, giving perspective and integrating appropriate humor.
Nothing personal
The entire story links old and young / the illustrations are wonderful and ALL my grandchildren love it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
This book tells the heartwarming and humorous tale of the relationship of Anne, a little girl, and Mrs. Simpson, an ecentric old woman. They develop a fast friendship and spend all of June and July playing together. Anne is inspired by Mrs. Simpson's yo-yo ability. She can do many tricks including the Loop to Loop, so Anne decides to secretly learn how to yo-yo in order to impress her friend. One day Mrs. Simpson breaks her hip, which results in a change in their relationship and also in the exchange of their most precious belongings. The illustrations are colorful but simple and take a backseat to the story, as they should in this book.
This is a fabulous story about the bond between generations, and what better way than with a yo-yo! The young girl not only learns the skills of yo-yoing from the elderly woman, she learns valuable lessons about aging as well as the worth of our elders. I wish this book was still in print, as I would recommend to many elementary school teachers.
