Seven days, Seven books. Day 3. Saturdays are for Stella by Candy Wellins, illustrated by Charlie Eve Ryan

Aren't grandmother's the best?


Although part of Candy Wellins' book, Saturday's are for Stella, is about the relationship between a child and his grandmother and the grieving that follows with her passing; ultimately, the story is about how love is passed along in families from one person to another. Although George struggles emotionally after Stella is gone, he comes to see her spirit in the new baby sister he has, and begins enjoying his Saturdays with her.

Saturdays are for Stella is full of tenderness. I imagine this story will be valuable for young children who may be dealing with an aging, older grandparent, or adjusting to a new sibling. 

I highly recommend it!
