Open Granny's purse (yes, she said it's OK) and enter a treasure chest of mementos and magic. A unique, fourteen-page die-cut storybook crammed with interactive features and surprises for ages 3 and up, it contains a whole life waiting to be discovered.
Peek inside Granny's notebook. Try on her sunglasses. Check yourself in the mirror. Play with her keys. Look at her photos, read her letter, tie a bow, try on Granny's rings, wear her scarf. Not only is Granny's purse a veritable playground for little girls, but piece by piece it creates a portrait of an adventurous, independent, contemporary grandmother, imbued with spirit and gumption. This Granny's a traveler (and has the passport filled with stamps to prove it). A self-sufficient handyperson with her wrench and compass. A collector of lives and memories. And a genuine softie, with handfuls of treats ready to dispense.
She is also a very wise woman: My mommy says, 'You should never look in a lady's purse.' My granny says, 'Never say never!' My mommy says, 'Clean up your room!' 'Never throw anything away,' says granny. And while mommy always says, Sit still, please!, there's granny: Let's go! . . . Life is an adventure!
My Granny's Purse is illustrated in full color, has a Velcro closure, and comes in a clear plastic, stackable gift box. Jam-packed with fun things, it's really a story about love between the generations.
