This delightful book is about a little boy who befriends the residents of a retirement home next door to his house In particular, he makes friends with 96 year old Miss Nancy When he learns that Miss Nancy is having problems with her memory, he takes action A beautiful story about how compassion can make all the difference I legit cried reading this. As a younger child, my mother worked in a long term care facility Her shift was such that I would ride to work with her and then catch the bus from the facility to my school yes, this was the seventies.we did these kinds of things.I still remember Otto who made these lovely items out of rubber balls and yarn I wish I had mine still I still remember Frieda who would bang her spoon around her bowl when it was empty The memory is as clear as the Maypo I would share with the residents.And As a younger child, my mother worked in a long term care facility Her shift was such that I would

perhaps this is why I am drawn to this Mem Fox story about a young man who lives next door to a group home of elderly residents Each of these individuals have something to offer Wilfrid, but there is one special lady one who has four names too that has a special place in Wilfrid s heart When Wilfrid overhears his parents talking about Nancy Alison Delacort Cooper s memory, Wilfrid sets out to find

loss, Wilfrid becomes the key to Nancy s rediscovery In giving small tokens of himself, he helps her regain aspects of her past, all of which were believed to be lost.The idea of a generational divide was a profound message for me, highlighting the ease to which adults turn their back on the elderly, despite there being so muchto give Wilfrid s parents both pity Nancy for her dementia, with a resounding sense that there is little to be done It is the young in this story, Wilfrid, who refuse to give up hope and resign her as lost Some might point to the parents reflecting the realities of life and there being a childhood innocence here, but for me Wilfrid provides an insight that back needn t be turned.I really loved the concept of memory in this story, resembling something different to each of the characters and being a poignant symbol for perceptions on life and experiences Definitely a story that digs a bit deeper than the average, making the readerconscious of the power held by human thought This story of a young boy who lives next to an old folks home is a beautiful book about discovering what memories are, and how to share them with others It reminds me of all the initiatives happening in the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe to try to bring young children and the elderly together to share experiences and joy.We were given a copy of this book as a present at
