Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is a young boy who lives next to an elders’ home. When he is first introduced to the concept of memory, he starts to ask his elderly friends, “What’s a memory?” and learns all about life and love from their answers.
In a society that tends to leave elders in the margins, the story of Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge teaches children the value and beauty of spending time with and learning from the wisdom and experience of elderly people.
