Vanessa Brantley Newton’s Grandma’s Purse On Colorado Parent’s List of Books Celebrating Grandparents

06 Sep 2018

Vanessa Brantley Newton‘s newest picture book, Grandma’s Purse, has made it onto Colorado Parent’s “22 Books that Celebrate Grandparents” list. The books on this list were all recommended by local librarians and book experts, and were compiled just in time for National Grandparents Day on September 9th.  The list’s preface encourages us to “honor the wisdom, differences, and connections to the older generation,” and Grandma’s Purse definitely does just that, through Grandma Mimi’s special connection with her granddaughter. “Grandma Mimi’s purse is an endless source of fascination for a young girl in this colorful ode to the comforting magic of grandmas,” says Denver Public Library children’s librarian Amy Forrester.
