A sad good-bye indeed

Having lost several of my own family members over the years, recently a niece, I know what she's going through. Narration is excellent, tone and all. I'll see about listening to others in future.

Relive your childhood memories.

The narrators help us to say goodbye to a beloved character Mimi Kishi. Listen to this book so you can too.

One of my childhood favorites holds up

I've been avoiding this one for a while because I didn't want to cry.

Claudia's stages of grief was well done and while heartbreaking, a good story for kids to learn about the topic.

The subplot with Claudia and Mary Anne teaching an art class was well done and a good balance.
I felt so sad for Corey, feeling abandoned by her parents. I was glad when Claudia (politely) told her mom off.
And Kristy gave some great advice about Claudia and Corey's friendship as Claudia is grieving.

There was one moment of comic relief when the BSC was remembering the first time Mimi tried pizza for the first time.

But I did cry a few times and this one is one of my favorite of the series.

5 out of 5 Portraits of Mimi.

I can relate.

I lost my Nanna in 2019 so I know how Claudia feels. I know we both miss our grandmothers very much. Poor Claudia. I understand how she feels. That’s why I chose this rating. I love how this is a book that I can relate to. I’d recommend this to anyone who has just lost a grandparent that they’re very close to.
