Take a deep breath and enjoy the tiny moments that enrich life in this poignant story that takes readers through bittersweet celebrations. The last day of school, the pause before blowing out birthday candles, and the closeness of gathering around a campfire are just some of the moments mentioned in How to Make a Memory by Elaine Vikers and Ana Aranda. 

To remember means to keep something in your mind.
To hold it safe in your memory, like a small, smooth egg in your hand.
How do you make a memory? And how do you remember?

Check it out along with other picture books and nonfiction books we got last week below!
