"I Miss My Nana" by Lorrie Panzeri and Karen Martinat

I Miss My Nana is a tender story about the love between a mother, daughter, and Nana. In the child’s point of view she explains the fun things she and her Nana experience and how she can keep these special memories close in her heart. It validates the feelings of grief that she is experiencing prior to death and after her Nana dies. A death of any kind is difficult but to a child it can be devastating. This book shares how spending time with the one you love before they die are moments to be treasured. Included in the book are pages that can be colored and are intended as permanent pages to tell the story.

Available in Kindle Unlimited and in print.
