This is a heartfelt and moving story of a little boy who wants to find his friend's missing memory. Wilfred lives next door to a nursing home and visits the residents regularly. When one of his resident friends, Nancy, seems to be losing her memory, he sets out to ask his father and the other residents what a memory is. They have varying replies and meanings, as a memory is not the same thing to everyone. With all the answers, Wilfred returns home to collect various items and takes them to his friend, hoping to help her remember. While at first, she wonders about a small boy visiting with what she thinks is a strange collection, one by one she handles them and starts to remember her childhood and the brother who went to war. Wilfred is happy that her memory has returned. Beautifully and simply written, this Picture Book has deep implications for therapy. As a puppeteer and former aged care worker with dementia residents, I can testify to the power of simple items for memory recall. How wonderful would our world be with many more Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridges to share their love and concern for the older generation.
