Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge
Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, a rather small boy, lives next door to a nursing home in which resides Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper, his favorite friend, because she has four names as well. When Miss Nancy "loses" her memory, the intrepid Wilfrid sets out to find it for her.
This book discusses aging and the importance and value of memories. A memory can be the most realistic way to keep a loved one in your heart. Help your child understand what a memory is, write some of your favorite ones of them in a journal and teach them to do the same.
I am a better Mom today because of this program.
