I Call My Grandma Nana

By Ashley Wolff

Tricycle Press, Hardcover, 9781582462516, 24pp.

Publication Date: August 11, 2009

Do you sew with your Abuelita, look at the stars with your MeMaw, or ride waves at the beach with your Bubbe? No matter what name you call your grandma, one thing is for sure: it's always fun to spend time with the one you love--who loves you right back.
Ashley Wolff's musical text and colorful collage artwork pay tribute to the special bond between children and their grandmothers.

About the Author
There seems to be no thrill like becoming a grandmother. ASHLEY WOLFF knows so many joyful, energetic, and downright hip Nanas, Abuelitas, and Grandmas that she had to write a book to celebrate how special each one is. Ashley has written and/or illustrated more than fifty books including "Baby Beluga, Stella and Roy Go Camping, Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten, When Lucy Goes Out Walking, The Wild Little Horse, " and "Mama's Milk." She lives in San Francisco with her husband, Sabin, and border collie, Lucy. Ashley hopes that someday her two sons will make her a Granny, too.
