Rosemary for Remembrance.
Grades 4 - 7 / Ages 9 - 12.
I thought of all the things Granny had done to try and find her box: She'd had me dig up the rose bushes and climb the cedar tree. She'd collected all the umbrellas and cut up a blue-velvet cushion. None of this made sense, but if I was going to believe Granny I had to trust her.
Rosemary (also known by various family members as Rose or Rosy) lives in Vancouver with her rather disorganized but loving family. Since her mother's death, her paternal grandparents have moved in to the household to help look after the four children. But as Granny becomes increasingly confused, it is Rosemary who looks after her. Granny gets into many different kinds of difficulties while searching for her valuable missing box, but sympathetic Rosemary helps her find it. This is a down-to-earth story, exploring family relationships, with lively touches of humour.
