“Dear Nana” book on Amazon

For those of you who are looking for a book for your children or grandchildren don’t forget the “Dear Nana” book on

Dear Nana is a book that we all can relate to. Women and men will enjoy reading the memoirs of the many talented writers that make up this book. It describes grandmothers, who are referred to, by a variety of names. These various memoirs depict grandmothers from all walks of life who made an impact on their grandchildren. They come in different sizes, shapes, and ethnic backgrounds but the one trait that ties them all together is the deep impression they have made on their grandchildren. These grandmothers have given of themselves and instilled their influence on their grandchildren for future generations.DSC_1084
