Sky Memories by Pat Brisson, Wendell Minor

Readers young and old will be touched and inspired by this honest story about love and loss:

When Emily is 10-years-old her mother is diagnosed with cancer, and by the time Emily has turned 11, her mother will be gone. But in the last months of their life together, Emily and her mother find a way to celebrate and commemorate their relationship. Together, they gather, "sky memories," mental pictures of the sky in all of its beauty and diversity. Although she will lose her mother, Emily's memories of their life will be forever.

Ten exquisite paintings by acclaimed artist Wendell Minor accompany the poignant story.
