I have fond memories of the senor citizens in my family who taught me to bake, knit, and crochet; make horseshoes, pottery, and fudge; and shell lima beans and drive a tractor, among other things. Today’s picture book shows how one little girl creates a bond with the senior citizens she befriends in her life:
Marjorie misses her Granny dearly. Neighborhood kids are great, but Marjorie longs for a companion who appreciates baking, yarn, and yardwork. Lucky for her, she finds a “Senior Citizen Friends Group” at the local Community Center. Marjorie creates a disguise and fits right in…until her cover is blown! Margaret Aitken’s darling tale of intergenerational friendship accompanied by Lenny Wen’s bright illustrations can be appreciated by readers of all ages. The text expertly combines humor and heart to tell a touching story of young and old and loss and found friends. I think OLD FRIENDS is destined to be an old favorite!
