Nana in the City by Lauren Castillo

A boy has gone to the city to visit his nana.  He loves his nana but he does NOT love the city.  The city is busy, loud, and filled with scary things.  He does not think his nana should live in the city.  But nana gives him a red cape and shows the boy HER city.  Yes, the city is busy and loud but that does not have to be a bad thing.  And there are also some NOT so scary things in the city.  A great book for discussion on perspective and looking at things differently.  Simple text makes it easier to find the "lesson" to be learned from the boy's experience in the city.  The illustrations most certainly support the text and without the illustrations, especially since they repeat in the second half of the book, the message would be lost.

Text:  5 Buckeye leaves
Illustrations:  4 Buckeye leaves
