This is such a touching story. When the book started, I had no clue that he was blind until Louis said it. I think the author did a great job depicting the love a grandmother has for her grandchildren. I like how they portrayed Louis to be a normal boy and didn’t start out by showing his disability. I was also fascinated with how cool he recognized her by her scent. Definitely was emotional when his grandmother passed, but amazing he was able to share the moments he did when she was still alive. The hickory chair was the ultimate symbol of the memories they shared. This was so beautifully written and even made me forget Louis was blind because I was so captivated with his relationship with his grandmother. ( )

The reader of this book did a fantastic job reading this book. This one might be my favorite. I love that the first thing mentioned in this book was not that Louise was blind. I feel like books that do that can give a message that that is all that matters and that is all the person is. I love that one of the main things the author focuses on is her sense of smell. My favorite thing is the symbolism of the chair and how the note was hidden there. The simple language and short story makes this book suitable for younger audiences. ( )

At first this book confused me. I didn’t notice in the book that the main character was blind until the main character mentioned he had blind sight. I would have not guessed this book was about a child that is blind. It was a good book, however, this book is not my favorite. ( )

The Hickory Chair is a beautifully written story about love and family. Louis is a blind boy who holds a special bond with his Gran. Although he cannot see her, he feels that he can because he knows her so well. When Gran passes, he believes she has forgotten him by not leaving something for him. He soon realizes that the memories they shared is what truly matters.
The descriptive language paints such a vivid picture for the reader. The words were drenched with warmth and affection. The hickory chair was the ultimate symbol of the love and bond Louis and his gran shared and stood as a treasure chest full of memories.
Their connection reminded me of the bond I shared with my grandmothers. Louis focused so lovingly on her smell. I can still smell my grandmother from certain trinkets I have of hers, which floods my mind with memories. This book does a wonderful job of showing that just because one can’t see, that doesn’t mean their experiences are lessened in any way. Although this book deals with blindness, it ultimately highlights the importance of family and the love that is shared. ( )

This book had such a slow start, and I kept wondering, "what is the disability?" I was dumbfounded by this book when I got to the part about "blind sight." How could I not realize this book was about a blind child? This book has a few twists that actually impressed me. This is a lovely book that I cannot wait to read to my children/students. ( )
