5.0 / 7.0

This is a book that makes me think everyone needs a grandmother like Nana. She sees the positive in all of the hard things in life. Her grandson has so many questions about why they don’t have certain things, like a car, and she has the perfect answer of how to see that what they have is enough. She also shows him how to find beauty when life doesn’t seem beautiful.
