Loved this book!!! What a sweet sentiment and I love the colorful pictures!
I want to be like this old lady!
So sweet!
This book would be an excellent resource for teaching about seasons and different things that go along with the different seasons. In the story, the old lady gives her neighbor different flowers for each season. In some seasons, she bakes goodies for the narrator of the story. It has great pictures that show how the outside scenery changes with each passing season.
Discusses the kindness of neighbors and how we can pass along the value of hospitality. I did this for 2 nursing homes and gave out a flower stem to each resident with the story. It was very well received. Small number of words per page, good for memory care units. Also good for teaching children.
Sweet portrait of a single older lady and how she befriends the kids on her street. I love this positive image of seniors, of singles, of intergenerational connections.
I would really like to know this lady! She is sweet and kind!
