A photo of A gift for Nana

A gift for Nana

"A thoughtful little Rabbit sets out to find the perfect gift for his Nana. He knows she will love anything he brings her but Rabbit wants this gift to be extra special. As he travels on his quest, Rabbit encounters an assortment of creatures-a crow, a smiling full moon, a stickler (whatever that is), a big fish, and a volcano. Each is certain they offer the best advice but nothing they suggest seems right for his Nana. It's not until Rabbit reaches the highest peak, that he finds exactly what he's been searching for."--

While we wait

"A boy and his grandmother wait and wait and wait. While they wait, they sit and knit, they stretch, they rock, they dance, they pace, they snack, they talk. But still, time passes s-l-o-w-l-y. And all the while, they "sit and knit and wait." What are they waiting for? Spoiler alert! The family's new baby! When mom and dad finally get home from the hospital there is joy and awe--and a special gift for baby, knitted with love. A gentle lesson about patience that is well worth the wait."--

Dadaji's paintbrush

"Once, in a tiny village in India, there was a young boy who loved to paint. He lived with his grandfather, who taught him to paint with his fingers, to make paints from marigolds and brushes made from jasmine flowers. Sometimes, the village children would watch them painting together, and the boy's grandfather would invite them to join in. They didn't have much, but they had each other. After his grandfather dies, the boy notices a little box wrapped in string with a note that read: "From Dadaji, with love," with his grandfather's best paintbrush tucked away inside. But he feels he will never want to paint again. Will the boy overcome his grief and find joy in painting and his dadaji's memory again?"--
