Mem Fox fans are a livid crew. If you've ever met one then I think you might know what I mean. When you meet a Mem Fox fan, it is more than likely that you may find yourself grabbed bodily as your arms start to fill with Mem Fox book after Mem Fox book. Mem Fox fans love her work and are quick to recommend everything she's done in a thrice. If you should feel like giving in and reading her works, then let me recommend that you begin with the delightful, "Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge". A touching tale of a boy and his elderly friend, the book explores the nature of memory itself in a way that children can understand.

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge lives next to an old folks home and (as the book is quick to point out), "he wasn't very old either". Just a scrappy young boy, Wilfrid likes all the old people in the home, but his favorite is Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper because she has just as many names as he does. One day Wilfrid hears his parents tsk tsking over the fact that Miss Nancy has lost her memory. Wilfrid asks what a memory is and his pop explains that it's something you remember. This definition doesn't sit well with young Wilfrid, however, and he runs over to the neighbors to get a little more clarification. What he finds instead, however, are mixed messages. I mean, Mrs. Jordon says a memory is something warm, while Mr. Hosking says it's from long ago. Mr. Tippett says it's something that makes you cry while Miss Mitchell claims it's what makes you laugh. And to top it all off Mr. Drysdale says it's as precious as gold, period. Using his head, Wilfrid decides to put things from his own memories into a box to give to Miss Nancy.

I really like this book. I read it today for the second time, but I remember it from when I was younger. This story has siplicity for young children and a wonderful story line for any age. I am going to get this book for my children when I grow up and hopefully my little sister will read it some day.

This book is a beautiful story with a wonderful ending, but not if you are trying to teach kids about what it means to have Alzheimer's Disease. I see this book mentioned quite a bit when exploring children's books on this disease. In the story, the boy successfully finds the woman's memory and she returns to her old self. This might send the wrong message to a child trying to understand why their grandparent doesn't remember them; they might think they can return his or her memory. I love this book, and would recommend it to anyone, but I would not recommend it as a teaching tool for kids on Alzheimer's Disease.

No matter how many times I read "Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge" by Julie Vivas, this book never fails to touch something deep inside my heart. It's about a little boy who lives next to a retirement home and his friendship with the people who live there. We get to see these elderly people in a little boy's eyes. And the thoughtful illustrations by Mem Fox show us quite clearly. (I love the illustrations) The touching and simple relationship between Wilfred Gordon and Miss Nancy is poignant to the core. Wilfred Gordon's desire to revive Miss Nancy's lost memory is sweet and absolutely delightful. It's a great story to share with children about memories and Alzheimer's disease. The world seems a much friendlier place through a child's eyes. Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is a fantastic book for all ages!
