A heartwarming story about the unique bond between a granddaughter and her grandma, celebrating family and precious shared memories.

Ruthie loves visiting her Oma. They always have lots of fun together.

One day Ruthie finds a pretty tin while playing hide and seek at her Oma’s house.
It’s full of Oma’s beautiful ‘memory buttons’ – each one reminds Oma of a special person in her life and a story to share with Ruthie.

And of course Ruthie must have a memory button of her own!


Tania Ingram and Jennifer Harrison have written an important book that will encourage reminiscing, perhaps even an investigation into why families are who they are for we all belong to someone, somewhere and we are all loved.

The Bottom Shelf

This story is so beautiful. I love the bond that Oma and Ruthie share, and have to admit that I actually cried whilst reading it with my youngest daughter! It is a really moving story about family and love. I highly recommend this lovely children's picture book.

In the Good Books blog

This is a feel-good story about families and memories and keeping them alive for younger generations. Highly recommended.
