Whether shes collecting grasshoppers, looking for cats, or trying on her first twirly skirt, Mary has her own way of doing things. Youll laugh when shes helping her boy cousin try on her pink silk dress or sometimes cry when her stray catMoreWhether shes collecting grasshoppers, looking for cats, or trying on her first twirly skirt, Mary has her own way of doing things. Youll laugh when shes helping her boy cousin try on her pink silk dress or sometimes cry when her stray cat disappears. Kiraya Kestins creative memory of herself paints a vivid picture that will fill your mind with sights, sounds, smells of what its like to be a preschooler growing up in the late 1940s in eastern Washington. In Remembering Me, Marys parents are completing their last year of teachers college. The story told in the first person and each chapter is backed by a poem that the author created for that episode and sometimes a picture.
