Reviews - What do our customers think?
A classic  Mar 19, 2008
This book is an excellent read, not only for kids who can relate to the death of a grandparent or a loved one, but for all children who are just starting to learn about death. It's a great way to introduce the topic. I had it as a kid, and recently bought a new copy. It is one of my most beloved childhood books. The illustrations are great, too--I don't know how kids would feel about them today, considering all the technology we have now in terms of graphics, but I remember being really intrigued by all the little details in the drawings (in the late 1970s/early 1980s).
nana upstairs and nana downstairs  Jan 20, 2008
Tomie dePaola's Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs is a tenderly written story about the death of loved ones and the beautiful memories they leave behind. The story is multigenerational seen through the sweet lens of childhood eyes. The illustations are charming and the tale will make you laugh and cry.
Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs  Oct 1, 2007
We were looking for a book to help prepare our 4-year old daughter for the death of her grandmother from Cancer. This book was recommended to us. We first checked it out from the library and had to renew. It helped us start the discussion of death with our daughter. She related to Tomie being 4 and his love for his Nana's. We bought this book because she did not want to return it to the library. She is so happy to have her very own copy.
Love This Book!  Mar 25, 2007
I had read this book several years ago so when my 87 yr old mother died last month, I bought a new Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs book for my grandson who is 10 yrs old. He told me that he will keep that book forever because it was so sweet and means everything to him now that his great-Nana is gone to heaven.
A book for every child...outstanding and very much needed!  Feb 1, 2007
From it's title and the cover, I wouldn't have picked up this book. There's nothing that "jumped out" at me. It's about grandmas, but so what - lots of books are.

FORTUNATELY, it was included on my son's [...]reading list. What we discovered is the most sensitive rendering of a young child's experience in coping with the death of a loved one.

If we read only one of dePaola's books, and this was it, I would say he is a genius in children's literature!
