I have to say this is a favorite of mine. I loved how the child went around asking all the neighbors of hers what a memory was and when they gave him an answer he kept it close. By the time he was finished asking he joined all the answers together and went to his friend. I think this is a great book to teach children that even if they have a memory of something small that it could mean a lot later down the road. Hold on to everything you can and learn from it if something were to happen as a mistake.
