Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, a rather small boy, lives next door to a nursing home in which resides Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper, his favorite friend, because she has four names as well. When Miss Nancy "loses" her memory, the intrepid Wilfrid sets out to find it for her.
Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is a book I use in several ways. I use it when we are studying about Mem Fox. I also use it to emphasize how even young children can help other people. My students love the way the child in this story helps Miss Nancy.
