Just one of the few children’s stories to highly intergenerational friendship

Children’s author Ted Landkammer published “The Poppies on the Hill” (Christian Faith Publishing; 2017) to good reviews from Foreword Reviews. This children’s book revolves around themes of intergenerational friendship and neighborly love.
Described as ‘a heartfelt picture book that tenderly addresses human life cycles’ and ‘a bittersweet tale of intergenerational friendship,’ “The Poppies on the Hill” tells the story of the elderly Mrs. Brannigan and the children who care for her, especially the nine-year-old Sarah and her four-year-old brother Joey.
Granny Brannigan, as she is affectionately called by the children, would wait by her front gate to give chocolate cookies to all the boys and girls on their way home from school. Sarah and her friends would stop at her house for the delicious homemade treats. One day, however, Mrs. Brannigan is not by her gate.
Feeling very worried, Sarah pays the old woman a visit and then finds out she is not feeling well. She stays for a while to keep Mrs. Brannigan company. Knowing that Sarah and her family live in a house in front of a large hill, Granny gives her four packets of poppy seeds.
Why does Granny give Sarah some packets of poppy seeds? How much do the poppies mean to Granny and the children? To find that out, get a copy of Ted Landkammer’s “The Poppies on the Hill” through through Amazon ( and Barnes & Noble (
