From the same creators of the acclaimed picture books My Dad, My Rock (a Kirkus Best Book of 2022) and What Makes Us Human (a White Ravens 2023 selection already translated into over twenty languages) comes a a touching story about cherishing our memories, the present moment, and our loved ones before it is too late.

On Saturdays, Claire’s dad likes to take her to a special place. There are no toys or games there, so sometimes Claire prefers to stay home. Today, before it is time to leave, Claire finds a letter that could change everything…

With lyrical text and beautiful illustrations full of metaphors, Before I Forget deals with the heartbreaking experience for children of witnessing a grandparent who suffers from dementia lose, little by little, their memories and their ability to function normally.
