Summary
A little boy remembers his grandmother before she became ill, and during her long recovery he tries to imagine how things will be when she comes home from the hospital. Once again Greenfield displays commendable sensitivity in this story about an African-American boy who must cope with a beloved grandmother's illness. This poignant exploration of a child's feelings of loss, sorrow, and hope features a closely knit African-American family and community, lovingly depicted in paintings. A wonderful sense of neighborhood permeates the pages of this touching book
