How blessed is it to have two grandmothers living under the same roof? This little boy experienced having both by his side. Within the story he knew each of them well and even experienced death and showed how he coped and understood the life process. It‘s a good book for children who do not understand death. Good sentimental book. #UCFWaltersLit https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/NanaUpstairsAndNanaDownsta...

Brookegamble @Linsayesp I really enjoyed when Professor Walters shared this book with us! This book can be relatable to almost all students and is a great read aloud for younger students! #UCFWaltersLit 5y
Seans_h @Linsayesp I think this is a great choice to share in the class for introducing mature reading topics for growing readers. I enjoyed having this story shared in class because it can make you feel something and put us in the same place as the boy in the story. The story can also be relatable for some so they will really appreciate it. #UCFWaltersLit 5y
