Each button on Laura’s memory string represents a piece of her family history. The buttons Laura cherishes the most belonged to her mother—a button from her prom dress, a white one off her wedding dress, and a single small button from the nightgown she was wearing on the day she died. When the string breaks, Laura’s new stepmother, Jane, is there to comfort Laura and search for a missing button, just as Laura’s mother would have done. But it’s not the same—Jane isn’t Mom. In Eve Bunting’s moving story, beautifully illustrated by Ted Rand, Laura discovers that a memory string is not just for remembering the past: it’s also for recording new memories.

In ancient, pre-literate cultures across the globe, tribal elders had encyclopedic memories. They could name all the animals and plants across a landscape, identify the stars in the sky and recite the history of their people. Yet today, most of us struggle to memorize more than a short poem. Using traditional Aboriginal Australian song lines as a starting point, Lynne Kelly has since identified the powerful memory technique used by our ancestors and indigenous people around the world. In turn, she has then discovered that this ancient memory technique is the secret purpose behind the great prehistoric monuments like Stonehenge, which have puzzled archaeologists for so long. The stone circles across Britain and northern Europe, the elaborate stone houses of New Mexico, huge animal shapes in Peru, the statues of Easter Island - these all serve as the most effective memory system ever invented by humans. They allowed people in non-literate cultures to memorize the vast amounts of information they needed to survive. But how? For the first time, Lynne Kelly reveals the purpose of these monuments and their uses as 'memory places', and shows how we can use this ancient technique to train our minds.

Man sieht mit dem Herzen: Ein kleines Mädchen, neugierig und wissensbedürftig hat den Kopf voller Fragen und findet in ihrem Opa einen geduldigen Zuhörer und Erklärer. Er weiss über viel Bescheid und gibt es sehr gerne an sie weiter, ob am Meer oder in der Nacht, immer weiss sie, dass sie ihn auf seinem Sessel finden kann. Aber eines Tages ist der Sessel leer. Verunsichert und um es wirklich nicht zu verlieren, packt sie ihr Herz in eine Flasche und hängt sie sich um den Hals. Aber nun ist nichts mehr wie zuvor, Sterne, Ozean, sie hat keine Fragen mehr, die einzige Änderung ist die Flasche, die immer schwerer und hässlicher wird. Bis sie jemanden trifft, der kleiner und jünger ist und voller Fragen, wie sie früher. Sie beschliesst, ihr Herz wieder aus der Flasche zu holen, benötigt aber noch einmal Hilfe dazu. Ihr Herz kehrt an seinen Platz zurück und auch der Sessel ist nicht mehr so leer. Ein wunderschön illustriertes Buch zum Thema Trauern und dem Verlust von einer Person, der man nahe stand. Aber auch wie wichtig es für ein Kind ist, immer eine Ansprechsperson für alle Anliegen und Fragen zu haben. Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Monika Hedinger.
