Emma's Question
( by Catherine Urdahl/ illus. Janine Dawson, Charlesbridge $7.99 Score: )

Grandma is sick and five year old Emma is worried. Like so many children she has serious questions that “scritch and scratch” at the back of her throat — questions she is afraid to ask. This is a tender book that addresses an all too common experience. This just might be helpful for such moments in the life of a family. There is no final answer here, nor a happily ever after glossing over. It’s a gracefully crafted story that shows the true grit of Grandma and how life goes on even in the face of uncertainty. 5-8.
