"Wilkie says even though her daughter never really knew her dad "the things she can tell you about him will warm your heart". She says it's a "testament to the importance and power of memories" - and that's a description that equally applies to this poignant book."

"In this delightful rhyming book featuring brightly coloured illustrations and smiling faces, Kylie Wilkie addresses the loss of someone special with optimism and humour (why do people eat “yucky” olives?!). Happy memories learnt from her mum enable a young girl called Dylan to look on the bright side and think of her dad with positivity rather than sadness."

"Kylie Wilkie is an incredible woman, mother and author. Resilient, driven, intelligent and a great optimist are the words that I would use to describe her.

To be able to take such a tragedy in her life as losing her husband and baby Dylan’s Dad, and to turn that into an important and beautiful legacy is simply incredible. 

Memories Are Forever is a wonderfully written and illustrated book that not only keeps Dave’s memory alive in his daughter, but teaches us all that we must celebrate the lives of those we lose and have those difficult conversations with our children that we often avoid - about loss, love and families."
