  • Wordsworth Dances the Waltz


“Now that she’s losing her memory, She’s still my Grandma, isn’t she?”

In Frances Kakugawa'sWordsworth Dances the Waltz, children are introduced to the concept that as grandparents age, they may become different, and even forget important things. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t still a part of the family nor do they love us any less than they did before. As the story progresses, Wordsworth finds comfort in writing poems that express his confusion over the changes in his beloved grandparent and the fond memories he has of her more vibrant days. His poems also help his family understand that Grandma would still like to do things she always loved—spending time with the family, laughing and dancing. Wordsworth Dances the Waltz is the second book featuring the literary mouse. The Northern California Publishers & Authors group named it the 2007 "Best Illustrated Children's Book" and also gave it their Bronze Award for "Best Book Overall."
