Reading Level: 4 - 8 years
When Francie's Great-Granny Annabel dies after suffering from Alzheimer's disease, Francie must battle the emptiness she feels--and the "emptiness" she fears others will associate with her great-grandmother's last years. By asking the family to record their favorite recollections of the real Annabel, Francie discovers and nurtures the small gifts of memory that are the legacy of a loved one's life. Full color.
