If you carry a big purse full of very important items, then Grandma’s Purse is a story you will want to share with little ones.

This little girl loves when her grandma Mimi comes to visit. She carries a big purse full of surprises. Together they peek inside. She has a mirror, lipstick, perfume and hair pins too. The little girl makes herself pretty just like her Mimi. There are plenty of other things and Grandma explains to her why these things are so important. In the bottom of the purse is a very special surprise for this little girl. What do you think it is?

Full of art and color, this little gem speaks to so many readers. Everyone can recognize a mom or a grandma in their family with a purse full of magic. This story is great for reading out loud, for beginner readers and anytime you are looking for a giggle. Parents and caregivers can discuss with kids what they’ve found to be the most surprising thing found in a purse.

Grandma's hold a special place in a child's heart, especially when they carry a bag full of treasures, treats and fun!

This is a cute story about a little girl, her grandma (Mimi), and all the special things Mimi keeps in her purse. Most of these objects have ties to her granddaughter (a mirror to put on her lipstick so her lips are ready to give the girl a big kiss, glasses to help her see the girl's pretty face, etc.). I love the two-page spread where the girl attempts to dress like Mimi! Grandparent picture books are quickly becoming some of my favorites. Give it a read if you're interested in sweet (not cloying) grandparent stories, too!
