I don't have much to say, but that I have a 1 year old son who adores his Nana and who also adores this book. At storey time when I ask him to get a book My Nana and Me is what he gets and he usually wants me to read it at least two times before nap or bed time. This is just an all around great book, written content and illustration.

This book is a charming story about the strong bond of love between a little girl and her beloved Nana. It takes you through a special day they spend together enjoying a tea party, dressing up fancy, playing hide-and-seek, sharing Eskimo kisses sprinkled with words of endearment, plaiting Nana's hair, playing pat-a-cake and much more. They are truly enjoying each other's company so much just lovin' on one another. After a warm bath the little girl basks in cuddle time curled up on Nana's knee. Nana reads story after story to her which delights them both. Then it's time for bed. The two lovebirds snuggle up under the blankets and drift off to sleep to the rhythm of their heartbeats blending together. The amazing illustrations are softly coloured and they augment the strong feeling of the love that flow between the two. The illustrator has included at the beginning of the book a place to insert a picture of the reader's Nana which personalizes the book making it a family treasure. This heartwarming story is a celebration of love between a granddaughter and her grandmother and I highly recommend it.
This delightful story follows a little girl and her grandmother through a day filled with tea parties, dancing, hide-and-seek, pat-a-cake, bathtime, storytime, and bedtime. Depending on who the reader or listener is, they will take various things from this story; The love between grandparents and their grandchildren, being raised by grandparents being a normal situation, a sleepover with grandma, how wonderful it is to spend time with your grandparents etc. The story is told in simple language for young children to understand. My only complaint as a teacher is "Nana and Me" on the first page when gramatically it should be "Nana and I". The watercolour illustrations add warmth to the story. The expressions on the faces of both the grandmother and granddaughter are priceless, they are so real. The emotions expressed are easy to see and relate to. What a wonderful story to use as a bedtime story, for grandma and grandchild to share and talk about or to use as a reminder to spend time with your grandparents whenever you can. A great addition to a home, classroom or school library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
