Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge (Public Television Storytime Books)
This beautiful picture book can be enjoyed as much by an adult as a child. It's a sweet story that avoids turning saccharine, created by two favorites: Fox is a wonderful author and Vivas's work in watercolor is both vibrant and whimsical. Read the book to learn about Wilfrid and his best friend, and to discover what's in the "box of memories."
Synopses & Reviews
Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge lives next door to a nursing home in which several of his good friends reside. Of course, his favorite is Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper, because she has four names just as he does. The only problem is Miss Nancy, who is 96, has "lost" her memory. Undaunted, Wilfred sets out to "find" Miss Nancy's memory for her.
"The illustration's splashy, slightly hazy watercolors in rosy pastels contrast the boy's fidgety energy with his friends' slow, careful movements and capture the story's warmth and sentiment." School Library Journal
