From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-2-A tender tale that many children will relate to and enjoy. Nutmeg's grandmother is getting old and forgets a lot, but she remembers a great deal, too.The elderly bear has no trouble making an apple pie from memory, but she forgets to take it out of the oven. It is the stories of her youth-sleigh rides, snowstorms, and dances of long ago-that she recalls best, and these are the ones that Nutmeg loves to hear. Wahl's writing is crisp and clear. His short, smooth sentences with simple vocabulary make the narrative easy to read. Johnson's cozy, appealing illustrations cover three quarters of each double-page spread with soft and cuddly bears that will beckon young smiles. While there are many other intergenerational tales available, this one, because of its gentle telling, is worthy of consideration.

From Booklist:

Ages 4-6. A bear's eye-view of the aging process. Nutmeg, a polar bear, likes it when Grandma Pinky comes to visit, but lately Grandma is forgetful, at least about such things as where she placed her cane or the pie she has baking in the oven. Yet, Grandma has an amazing faculty for remembering incidents from the past--sleigh races in the snow when she was little, and dancing all night at the Raspberry Hop. There is a scary moment when Grandma gets lost, but she knows that Nutmeg will find her. And her granddaughter does. There are many sweet moments in the story, which is nicely illustrated with colorful chalk drawings. The book reminds children that although grandparents can go through changes that may bother both grandparent and child, there still can be many wonderful moments if the time is taken to share and enjoy.
