As her grandmother’s health declines, a young girl begins to lovingly take the lead in their cozy shared autumn traditions. Poetic prose paired with evocative illustrations by Mexican illustrator Claudia Navarro make for a beautiful celebration of life and a gentle introduction to the death of a loved one.
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.
