Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge

The sweet little boy has four names and he lives near an 'old people's home'. One day he hears his parents saying that one of the residents had lost their memory. Feeling so sad for her Wilfrid goes around and thinks of things that could help. He compiles his collection and brings them to her. She tells him stories from her past relating to the objects he brought her and she gets her memory back. A very sweet book. We all could use the sensitivity of this little boy toward those who are elderly. Sit and listen at their feet for they are wise.
