About the book...
Our facial expressions can tell a lot about us. Often no words are even needed to be expressed as those around us simply read our face... a face that expresses our feelings ever so clearly. We can frown, smile, roll our eyes, pucker up our lips, raise our eyebrows, or just stare blankly with no expression at all (just to highlight a few) and all those contortions tell a story to the ones observing us.
This delightful book, written in rhyme, lovingly tells a story from the heart of a little girl who obviously watches her grandma's face very closely and loves her grandma dearly. As her grandma is tucking her in bed and in very close contact, the little girl reminisces about all the wonderful ways her grandma communicates to her just by her facial expressions alone.
Grandma's beautiful dark brown eyes, the window of her soul, reveal a lot to the little girl who is laying wide-eyed in her bed looking into it. The bond of love that a flows between the two connect their hearts and silent messages pass between them before she closes her eyes and finally drifts off to sleep. This book is a perfect bedtime story. It conjures up images in the little girl's mind of smiles, happy memories and best of all a feeling that she knows that she knows that her world is at peace. I highly recommend this book.
Elaine McKay lives in Scotland with her husband and four young children. She graduated from Glasgow University with an MA Honours degree in English Literature and Philosophy. She dreamed her own children would experience the joy of reading as much as she has and set out to surround them with the most magical, fun, lyrical, humorous, loving words she could find. Lots of these words she read from the pages of beautiful books, old and new, some she spoke from her own heart, and those words were the ones that would become Grandma’s Face Tells Her Story’.
