Little girl loves to visit grandmother’s house. One day, she finds a box of poems in the attic of grandmother’s house. It was the poems written by her mother when she was growing up. Young girl feels her mother’s experience and share the feelings as reading the poems.
I think this book has aspects of family bonding. This book reminded me of listening to the story of my mother’s childhood and sharing those experience. I think it’s so important to learn about the history of my family and share the feelings between the family members. This book gives messages of family bonding between mom and daughter relationship. It would be awesome if mother read this to their daughter and also share their childhood experience.
