A beautiful story about a boy trying to help an elderly woman retrieve her memories. This is included in our unit when we discuss themes of stories, because the theme of friendship is so well supported.

The book also contains a lot of talk about what a memory is. I use this to form a poem about memories using metaphors with my students. They in turn form their own metaphor poems about something else. I got this lesson from, which is one of my favorite sites for writing lessons.
