Sugar Plum doesn't want her Mama to leave to go to work. She especially doesn't want her Mama to leave her with Mis' Lela. But, in time, she grows to love her, for her gentle ways and her caring touch. When Mis' Lela dies, she is saddened but thankful for the time she spent with her.

This book would be good to read to the kids to comfort them. They can write about an influential person that they have or had in their life and describe what they meant to them and things that they did with them.

This book uses excellent details and describing words. One of the few books I've come across that deals with death, especially the death of a friend.
