Sadie and Ori
Publication Year: 
Sadie, Ori and Grandma all love the soft blue 'Together Blanket' that Grandma knit when Sadie was born. They use it for building forts, for snuggling and fun. As Sadie and Ori grow up and as Grandma gets older, too, the blanket continues to bring the family comfort in very special ways. A sweet, sensitive story about a grandma who nurtures her grandchildren until the children realize that the time has come for them to nurture her. The years are counted through the evolution of the family's Passover seder, which starts out at grandma's house with her doing all the cooking, and eventually moving to her children's house in acknowledgement of grandma's growing frailty. If you have a dry eye after reading this book you have a heart of stone. A 2016 Sydney Taylor Notable Book for Younger Readers recipient.
