This is a beautiful one for the seasoned and wise Nanas, Grandmas or Grans.
The little one asks with innocent curiosity “Do you mind the wrinkles Nana?” to which Nana replies “Not at all, you see it is in these lines that I keep all my memories.”
Recollections of young love, saying goodbye, making her sister’s wedding dress and seeing her granddaughter for the first time are all there in the lines on Nana’s face.
This is an incredibly moving story and a profound celebration of life. Fabulous illustrations, too.
