Book Review :: Nanna's Button Tin

Nanna's Button Tin - Written by Dianne Wolfer and illustrated by Heather Potter

"Nanna’s button tin is very special. It has buttons of all shapes and sizes and they all have a different story to tell. But today, one button in particular is needed. A button for teddy. A beautiful story about memories and the stories that shape a family."

What a sweet book!  It's a simple (and very familiar) story, snapshot memories as a little girl and her Nanna sort through a button collection.  The illustrations star for this one, understated and impossibly cute!  Potter is especially clever at capturing expressions, so much is conveyed in the slight press of lips or softened expression.  As with (almost) any picture book, the pleasure for me is in the details, and this one has details!  Many, sweet details.

Surely the perfect book to store at a grandparents house, or gift it with a selection of thrifted buttons 😍.
