Wonderful Insight Into the Thinking of a Child
Sunday, 31 October 2010 17:00

By Kin Macbeth (florida)

Jeanne Simonoff does a great job of showing the thinking of small children in this memoir. Even though Jeanne shows the guilt and the confusion created in her two (almost three-year-old) mind her family's well-intentioned statement that her mother, who has died, has gone to Chicago, this is not another memoir about growing up with an insensitive family. Instead, we meet a wonderful stepmother, whom she and her father both marry and who always wanted a little girl just like her. This is a beautiful story.
