Noor and her grandfather bond over a shared love for pies and creating cherished memories during summer holidays. Once school commences and they are separated physically, they keep in touch through weekly video chats focused on life updates over a piece of pie, which they call “pie reports.” As Granddad faces health challenges and withdraws, Noor preserves the tradition by documenting her reports, maintaining a heartfelt link until he’s ready to reconnect. The Pie Reports (Orca $21.95) for ages 6-8, by writer and illustrator Hayley Lowe, emphasizes the enduring connection between a child and grandparent, and shows how to stay close across physical and emotional distances, particularly in times of illness. 9781459838079
