Book review: "Something To Remember Me By" (Bosak)

This book was part of the Grandparents unit we just completed with the Come Sit By Me curriculum we're using.  

It was a story about a little girl and her grandmother and shows the girl spending time with her grandmother as she is growing up through the years.

It was a beautiful book that moved me to tears as I read it out loud to them.  (I don't often preview the books so this has happened more than once now).  It probably hit me so hard because I have such great memories of my own grandmother and am thankful she is still around at the age of 90.

There's a lovely description of the book at Legacy Project and a link to Across Generations Activities.

Something to Remember Me By is written by Susan V. Bosak and illustrated by award-winning artist Laurie McGaw.


  1. Kristina, Thank you for your comment on my webstite. I love this book too. What a great idea to build a curriculum around grandparents. They play such an important role in our lives.

  2. Yes, I think it's been one of my favourite units out of this curriculum.
