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.
In this imaginative and charming story, Simona Ciraolo turns the lines from old age into little wrinkles of wonder and memory as a little girl learns all about the precious moments in her grandma's life.
"When the child asks if Nana minds the lines on her face, the woman declares that it is in these lines that she keeps her memories. Each wrinkle is examined and explained, from a furrow that came from solving a mystery to crow's-feet from a seaside picnic to, finally, laugh lines recording the birth of the questioner. Each stated memory is followed by a full-bleed spread depicting the scene from the woman's past in a bright palette. A sweet, quiet intergenerational story and exploration of family." — Gay Lynn Van Vleck, School Library Journal
