Perfect Picture Book Friday

grandmas-purse.jpgGrandma's Purse (Alfred A. Knopf, 2018) by Vanessa Brantley-Newton just makes me smile. Not only while reading it, but whenever I think about it.

Told from the viewpoint of a little girl who is excited "Mimi is coming for a visit," the book shows us treasures from Grandma's purse. And those magical things make her grandma Mimi. Items are explained and the little girl gets to use them.

I love how she calls her grandmother's perfume "smell-good" and how Mimi explains that her coin purse "also holds memories."

At the bottom of the purse, there's a surprise, but you'll have to read the book yourself to find out what it is.

This is one of Vanessa's three authored books. To see the other two, and all the books she's illustrated for other authors, go here.
