The Lines on Nana's Face
Publisher: Flying Eye Books
It's nana's birthday and the whole family is celebrating. When her observant grand-daughter asks why nana sometimes looks sad, worried or even surprised, nana explains that these expressions are from the memory lines on her face. But how can there be enough space for a memory in such a little line?
The little girl points to different lines and asks nana about the memories. One line reminds nana of discovering that her missing cat had had kittens; another is her best picnic ever on the beach; a third is the night she met her husband at the funfair. There are happy memory lines and some sad ones, too. And one of the best is when her beloved grand-daughter was born...
A touching exploration of old age and the discovery that wrinkles are not just marks on the skin but also reminders of special moments in time.
