- A Beautiful Relationship -
When she helps her mom and dad clean Grandfather's room, she discovers his treasures, which all have a story to accompany them. She is aware of these stories due to their close relationship and sharing. In her grandfather's chair is a new notebook.
"My name is written on the front. It's new and empty and was made by my grandad."So the young girl begins to write and draw a story...a story of what she knows about her grandfather and the adventures they shared. (Something I'm sure he had in mind.)
What I Liked Most: The focus seems to be memories and important things about Grandpa's life that she and her grandfather shared, rather than about his death and loss. It's more of a celebration of life and memories.
