When the children of Lavender Lane go out to play every week on a special day they smell the wonderful smell of Miss Sadie s baking. They go to her house and see Miss Sadie and her cat and her mouse and experience her wonderful treats. They love this sweet lady. One day Miss Sadie s shades are drawn and her door closed. The children are disappointed, worried, and frightened for her. They knock on her door. She answers and what she tells them makes them sad. They realize that it s time for them to give back to her. Sweet Old Sadie is an opportunity to open communication between the generations. It is an opportunity to teach lessons of love and generosity, reciprocity, resourcefulness, and celebration. It is an opportunity to make memories with the young ones in your life. Sadie will remind you of a favorite woman in you life, or a woman you wished for in your life, or maybe the woman you hope to be in your life. She bakes, has an iPhone, and a lavender cat and mouse who like each other! Everyone loves her and you and the children in your life will too. Sweet Old Sadie is a story told in rhyme and colorful illustrations. It is the first in a series of Lavender Lane books written by Joyce Miller and illustrated by Melinda Patrick. Each one tells a story of a neighbor and how he or she relates and interacts with the children on the block. Each character has a unique story that explains who they are today and paves the way for dialogue on important subjects.
