Narrated by a young African American girl, Nana’s Hands is inspired by the relationship between the author’s daughter and her mother-in-law. The story’s heart-felt portrayal of a close, care-giving relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter will resonate with all readers, especially those with strong intergenerational relationships. Not only are Nana’s hands “magic” to the narrator, they are symbolic of the love, strength, and power that has been passed down through generations of women in the same family and that will continue to be passed on for generations to come.
