Lily and Nana is about a little girl named Lily and her Nana and the things they like about each other. Lily and Nana like to spend time with each other even though they don't always do the same things. For example, when they are gardening together, Lily likes to plant the garden, and Nana likes to water the garden after it's planted. They just enjoy being around each other and doing things together.

This is a cute little book, and it especially teaches the young reader the fun and enjoyment of spending time with his/her grandparents. The book is simple and easy to read with only one sentence on each page. The illustrations are a great addition to the story, showing the young reader what the words are saying. The only problem I have with the illustrations is with the faces of Lily and Nana. Lily doesn't always look like a girl in the pictures, and on both Lily and Nana, the faces seem mad or angry sometimes. That's just my opinion, but it seems like the characters could be smiling more to go with the happiness of the story. I do feel like this book would be a great addition to any school, public or personal child's library.

I love children's books (could be because I am a kid at heart, or simply, because I have two wonderful little boys who love to read!)! So, as usual, when the opportunity to review a wonderful sounding children's book, I jumped on the chance. Furthermore, with this one, I was SO glad that I did!

Lilly and Nana is a FANTABULOUS children's book for preschoolers or even young elementary schoolers. It's a child's book that is full of the meaning of love and loved ones. The words are easily read and easy to understand in a young child's mind.

Along with the easy to understand words and wonderful characters in Lilly And Nana, the illustrator did a wonderful job in creating bright, amazing eye catching pictures that flow terrifically with the words of the story. A wonderful bonus for this children's book.

This book is worthy of five stars and wonderful for all readers, young and old alike! I think that every grandparent should have this book, and every preschool class room should have a copy, as it's a wonderful exploration into bond of loved ones!
