An artistic children’s book about parting, grief and hope—a child’s love letter to their Grandma.
One day, Grandma is looking different than usual, and the family’s everyday life is turned upside down. Writing from a child’s point of view, author Astrid Hamm touches on fears and worries, but also shows the shared moments between grandchild and grandmother that grow into treasured memories. This is a heartwarming storybook about change in life, meant to be read together. Lovingly illustrated by New York artist Katie Armstrong, the book creates a space for children to share all the questions they might have.
For everybody who has had to face last goodbyes in life.
