Welcome to NANA'S BOOKS

We are on a mission to provide elevated, high-interest books to elders; readers and listeners in life review, living with and without cognitive challenges.

Truly person-centered, NANA'S BOOKS utilize resonant large-format imagery and familiar verse to cue long-held memories.

NANA'S BOOKS use nostalgic moments on the road of life to re-activate 'core selves' and deeply meaningful conversation.

Our Companion Books Unite Generations with Nostalgic Art and Literature 

We believe that books have the power to connect hearts and minds, and build communities.

Our books are an invitation for people of all ages and cognitive abilities to feel seen and heard, valued and understood.

Just as bedtime stories and lullabies welcome the very young into the human community, poetry, prayer, and prose invite elders back with the comforting sights and sounds of the past.
