Yay! Perfect Picture Book is back and boy do I have some treats in store for you this year…..
The lines on Nana’s face
Written and Illustrated by: Simona Ciraolo
Published by: Flying Eye Books October 2016
Ages: 3 – 5 years
Theme: Wonder, Memory, Intergeneration
Opening Lines: Today is Nana’s birthday! I know she’s happy because she likes it when we are all together.
Synopsis: It’s granny’s birthday, but her little granddaughter wonders why, because of the lines on her face, she looks so worried! But they are simply wrinkles, and grandma is very fond of her lines because they are where she keeps her memories.
Why I like this: I love this wrinkle in time story. This is a real treasure. When kids so often wonder at why when we get older more lines cross our face this beautiful story helps them see that they are merely wonders of times gone by. In each line this Nana tells her granddaughter of special moments she remembers from her childhood to present day. This is a heart-warming story, with soft colourful pencil and watercolour illustrations throughout.
