Description


Celebrating the love of grandparents and grandchildren, this gorgeous companion to the Caldecott Honor–winning Nana in the City is an appealing intergenerational exploration of country life.

When Nana comes from the city to visit her grandson in the country, the boy is so excited to teach her about all the wonderful things he does on the farm where he lives—feeding the ducks, milking the cow, even tending to bees.

But to his disappointment, Nana already seems to know how to do just about everything. And she isn’t the least bit nervous about picking up bugs or easing a hen aside to collect an egg. But then a storm hits in the night, and the boy must take the lead and make sure the animals are safe and dry.

And it turns out there are many more unique-to-the-country adventures to surprise his beloved Nana with.
