A beautiful children’s story but heartbreaking at the same time!

“The Poppies on the Hill” (Christian Faith Publishing; 2017) by Ted Landkammer is a children’s book that abounds with themes of friendship and neighborly love. Book review publication Foreword Reviews describes the book as ‘a bittersweet tale of intergenerational friendship’ between Sarah, a nine-year-old girl, and Mrs. Brannigan, a ninety-six-year-old lady.
Sarah is big sister to Joey, her four-year-old brother; they live with their parents in a nice blue house, behind which is a large hill. Mrs. Brannigan, as the children’s book suggests, lives alone with a cat. Granny Brannigan, as the children affectionately call her, would wait by her front gate to give chocolate cookies to all the boys and girls on their way home from school.
But one day, Mrs. Brannigan does not come out because she is not feeling well. Sarah becomes distressed so she visits the old woman to see if she could help and keep her company. In the middle of their conversation, Sarah mentions the big hill behind her home. At that, Mrs. Brannigan gives her four packets of poppy seeds.
Why does Mrs. Brannigan give Sarah some packets of poppy seeds? How much do the poppies mean to the old lady and the children? To find that out, order a copy of Ted Landkammer’s “The Poppies on the Hill” through Amazon (
