Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge

By Mem Fox

Illustrated by Julie Vivas

Published by Kane Miller, 1989

Wilfred is a young boy who lives near an old folks’ home and has befriended many of the residents there.  When he finds out that Miss Nancy is losing her memory, he sets out to help her find it again.  He enlists the help of other residents of the home to find out what memories are, then assembles objects for Miss Nancy to look at.  Miss Nancy finds that she actually does remember more than she thought she did, and Wilfred saves the day.

A great book for young children to discuss memories and the objects that help hold those memories for us.
