Grandma Mimi is coming to visit, and she always brings her purse. Grandma Mimi’s purse is special–buried deep inside is an adventure waiting to be uncovered. There’s a mirror and lipstick for big kisses; perfume, hairpins, and earrings to make her feel pretty; a coin purse full of memories; and candy, too. Sunglasses, a phone, and scarf are also inside, but the most delightful are the pictures of the past that she shares. But it’s the very last item at the bottom of her purse that is the best magical treasure of all.
Beautiful and relatable, Grandma’s Purse captures the joy of a little girl with her grandma. Grandmas’ purses are magical; they can transport you through time with an old snapshot or unlock a memory with a simple coin–there is no greater treasure than those buried in her purse. Vanessa Brantley-Newton captures all the joy of discovery and love, making this book a must-have for every grandmother. A perfect read for all the little girls out there who love going through their grandmother’s purse or those who remember the experience with their own grandmother.
