It's a heartwarming story about love and legacies across generations. Says one reviewer, "Something to Remember Me By has the emotion of Love You Forever, the inspiration of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and the charm of a Norman Rockwell painting."
The book has won six national awards:
"Something to Remember Me By" begins as a grandmother and her young granddaughter share special times 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, the keepsakes fill a cedar chest with memories, as it becomes clear that one gift is most precious of all -- the gift of love.

Really enjoyed the book however, the bookstore had messed the order up and ordered paper back instead of hard cover. I really wanted the hard cover book. Once the book finally came in it was too late to re-order the hard cover.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I heard the author read 'Something to Remember Me By' at the San Antonio Book & Author Luncheon. What a response she got from the audience! It is such a touching story with a universal message of the power of love across the generations. I bought copies for not only my grandchildren, but also for adult women in my family. Everyone at the luncheon seemed to be buying the book by the handful as well. Definitely a gift to share with others. I would also highly recommend the author's new book 'How to Build the Grandma Connection' for all grandparents who want to build the kind of close relationship depicted in 'Something to Remember Me By'.Was this review helpful?
