IMWAYR: Nana in the City

Monday Linky from Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers!

Nana in the City by Lauren Castillo

Have you read Nana in the City by Lauren Castillo?  It's a simple picture book with a sweet story.  A young boy goes to visit his nana in the big city.  He's scared.  He doesn't understand why his nana even lives here.  It's no place for a nana to live!

Then she makes him a fancy red cape.  The cape makes him feel brave!

Now he can see the city through new eyes. And see how wonderful it is...

The art is beautiful. So sweet...   Here are the awards it has been given:

  • A 2015 Caldecott Honor Book
  • Huffington Post Best Picture Book about Family
  • An NYPL 100 Books for Reading and Sharing
  • A 100 Scope Notes Top 20 Book of 2014
  • A Society of Illustrators Original Art Show Selection
