The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!

This book is quite sad as the little girl watches her grandma deteriorate mentally and physically before passing away, but also captures the joy of remembering our loved ones and what they taught us.
