    Summary: Daysha lost her Grandpa a year ago. Since then, Daysha noticed her Grandma was sad and missed Grandpa a lot. She found it strange that Grandma was sad, because when she thought of her Grandpa, she did not remember sadness, that was not who he was. To make her Grandma feel better, she took a journey to all the places her Grandpa loved, and collected things that reminded her of Grandpa in every place. When Daysha returned, she showed her Grandma everything she collected during the day. Grandma appreciated this reminder of who Grandpa was, and took Daysha for ice cream, just as Grandpa used to. Theme: Losing someone and not knowing how to live day by day without that person. Personal Response: Losing someone in your close circle is always hard, and I know that when this has happened to me I do feel sad, and don't know what is the best way to honor their memory. Recommend: I would recommend this book because there can be children who have already experienced a loss in their life, and this book can teach them a good way to remember that person. This book can also help other children relate to others who have suffered a loss, and teach them a lesson for when they do suffer a loss in their close circle.

Throughout the story, Daysha goes to the places she knew her grandpa loved and looked for items that remembered of him. She then went back to the house to put them all together in a very special way for her grandma to feel better. In the end, she found out that there was no cure for her grandma's sadness, she just needed hugs and "the right kind of remembering.Major Theme(S) I think the themes of this book would be growth, healing and grief. Daysha shows to be wanting to make her grandmother feel better for her loss and decides make it herself.A Personal Response to The TextI had a deeper experience while reading this book because my grandpa also died a few years. I had never thought how remembering such small things he did or liked were going to be able to make me feel happy and bring back good memories with him . Why You Recommend This BookI recommend this book because young kids do not really understand what a loss of a loved one is so reading this book can help them appreciate a little more the small things they do for us that makes us full at the end of the day. I enjoyed this book a lot.

    SummaryThe book follows a bunny, Daysha, who's grandpa has passed. Daysha's grandma is extremely sad about the lost so Daysha decides to cheer her up. Daysha goes on an adventure and finds fragments of grandpa's belongings at his favorite places to visit. She then brings the pieces home to show her grandma. Then, grandma and Daysha realize there is no reason to be sad with "hugs and the right kind of remembering." ThemeThe theme of the book is to focus on the good memories of the deceased rather than continuously thinking about the sadness of a loss. Personal ResponseI lost numerous loved ones in elementary school and would have loved to read a book like this. I believe it would have helped me understand how to grieve and move on from the death. Without this book, it was hard to focus on the good memories I had with the deceased.RecommendationI believe this is a great novel for children who are going through or are about to go through a loss. I recommend this book because the message is very important for young children who are unaware of the concept of death and dying. The novel would hopefully help individuals remember the good of the deceased and not focus on the bad.

    Daysha's grandmother is still sad a year after the passing of her grandfather. So Daysha sets off to help find a cure for Grandma's sadness.A sweet book good for any age confirming it is okay to be sad after the loss of a loved one. Sometimes the best cure is a reflection of all the happy memories that were shared. I believe this would be a great resource for counselors of young children to have on hand. Also, I want to applaud Layne Johnson for another beautifully illustrated story!
