Something to Remember Me By

Half a million copies in print – 6 national awards!


Something to Remember Me By is a seemingly simple
32-page storybook that has touched the hearts of children and adults across the country (read reviews).

This story about love and legacies across generations begins as a little girl and her grandmother spend special times together filled with "big warm smiles, and warm snuggly hugs." Many visits end with the grandmother's familiar words, "I want to give you something to remember me by." Then she gives her granddaughter a small keepsake.

As the years pass, grandmother and granddaughter share many gifts as the keepsakes fill a cedar chest with memories. It becomes clear that one gift is most precious of all – the gift of love.

This heartwarming story is beautifully complemented by the full-size, golden watercolor illustrations of award-winning artist Laurie McGaw.

An elegant new hardcover gift edition is available as
A Little Something.

The softcover edition is ideal for schools. It's a part of the Making Meaning and Accelerated Reader literacy programs. It supports language arts, social studies, and family history studies, as well as intergenerational programs like Grandparents Day. Download the Illustration Slides to project the illustrations when you're using the book with a group.

Says Generations Together at the University of Pittsburgh: "A well-handled story about a powerful lifelong intergenerational relationship... Sweet prose and delightfully detailed realistic illustrations, including portraits of the main characters that are alive and forceful.… A valuable addition to any home, school, community or child care library!"
