Product description

From Booklist

Daysha's grandfather has been gone a year when her grandma comes down with "a bad case of sadness." Sad isn't how the little bunny girl thinks of her grandfather, so she decides to go out and find some happy memories. Where he used to play his guitar, she finds an old button from his coat. Where they used to take walks, she gathers flowers and rocks. Feathers from a bird, a branch with berries--Daysha piles the items in her wagon and brings them to Grandma, who thanks her for finding the very nicest way to remember Grandpa. One could argue that human characters would have been more effective than rabbits for this sensitive story, but for the most part, Daysha makes for a happy, hopeful heroine (except for one close-up where she looks like she jumped off an Easter greeting card). The attractive artwork, done in oils, sparkles with sunlight and glows at sunset. A good lead-in to discussions about remembering those who have gone. Ilene Cooper
