I think this story is so sweet, beautiful and gentle. It can be tough to discuss memory issues and understand the realization that memory can disappear one day. In this caring and emotional read, Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge befriends an elderly woman named Nancy with whom he shares secrets with. They develop a wonderful friendship and Wilfrid actually helps Nancy regain some memory with certain objects she is familiar with. Although she struggles with memory, as it is not as sharp as it used to be, Wilfred is still able to be a great help to his good friend. I loved this story and it really moved me. I would definitely use the book in my classroom. It could very much come in handy when discussing memory loss like Alzheimers in older people. Kids may be able to relate this to their personal lives and gain a better understanding, acceptance and recognize how they do not need to feel alone if familiar with this. The visuals really pulled me in and I liked how there was a major size difference in the illustrations to show the small child, and the older people as larger characters.

The titular Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is a young boy who lives next to a retirement home, and he visits the residents often. He knows all about them and their hobbies, so when he hears his parents talking about his favorite person, Miss Nancy, and how sad it is that she'd lost her memory, Wilfrid sets out to recover them. First, he tries to find out what a memory is, and he asks all the other residents of the retirement home what memory is, and they all give different answers based on their perspective. Then, Wilfrid makes a collection of objects that reminds him of each answer he got from a person at the retirement home. By going over the objects with Miss Nancy, she recalls memories of her own, and she and Wilfrid share their recollections. This book is a good way for children to talk about an older person in their life that may be experiencing some kind of Alzheimer's or dementia. It shows that older people are not scary or sickly, but fun and full of stories and life. ( )

This story is significantly sad to read because it is about the author's grandparent and their struggle with memory loss. As it was being read in class, I recall a classmate of mine crying due to the fact that it hit close to home because a relative of theirs also dealt with memory loss. I think this book was a prime example in how we can relate previous experiences to certain texts bringing the emotions to life. ( )

The title is the name of the main character, so it doesn't give a lot away of the story being told. Wilfrid lives right next door to an old folks home. A friend from the home loses her memory and tries to learn what a memory is. It's a good learning book, with experiences so I would have this in my classroom.

This story is so sweet because it is about this kid that interacts with elder adults. I would use this book to show empathy and caring for others. In this book we can teach students about the loss of a loved one as well. We can teach students compassion. I would use this book for read aloud, with k-4th or even 5th grade students. It has nice illustrations as well. ( )
