Nana in the City (Laurel Castillo)

Lovely story. My kids thought it was kind of old fashioned because of the pictures and said they weren't that interested. We had a good discussion about how you can be happy anywhere if you look at things the right way. Good lessons on fears and perceptions.

Goodreads Summary:

A 2015 Caldecott Honor Book
In this magical picture book, a young boy spends an overnight visit with his nana and is frightened to find that the city where she lives is filled with noise and crowds and scary things. But then Nana makes him a special cape to help him be brave, and soon the everyday sights, sounds, and smells of the city are not scary—but wonderful. The succinct text is paired with watercolor illustrations that capture all the vitality, energy, and beauty of the city.
