About the Story

Nannie lives on a farm with rolling hills, a muddy creek, and lots of animals. Nannie loves everything about her farm. But what she loves most is when her family comes to stay. And her family love visiting her on the farm. There is so much to see and do on Nannie’s farm – picking fruit, herding the cows, shooing the sheep, walking across the rolling hills, and best of all, spending time with Nannie.

Nannie Loves is a delightfully warm and gentle story centred around a family's visit to their grandmother's farm from author/illustrator Kylie Dunstan. The repetitive rhyming text and poetic structure is simple, yet evocative. Accompanied by expressive illustrations created by paper collages, gouache and pencil illustrations with wonderfully bright and earthy colours, this story bursts with love and tenderness from first page until last.

Nannie Loves her farm and her family, and we know you will love this story too, told beautifully by storyteller Lael Stone.
