Nana Plays

Natalie's Art in Stories

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Nana Plays is a picture book illustrated by original oil paintings. The illustrations are sweet and joyful, while also tender and sad. The story is based on Natalie's own experiences when she was her mother's caregiver and she brought her youngest child to see Nana. Nana Plays delivers a powerful message about kindness and love. You may watch Natalie paint the art used for Nana Plays by visiting the included links in this book.
Nana Plays is a comforting book to read aloud to young children, but the story is also helpful for adults. Grandparents can use this book to reassure their grandchildren that even if life changes, their love will always be the same. Nana Plays gently encourages adults who are the caregiver for a parent, while also raising a young child. The positivity in this story implies that your child will be stronger through caregiving. The little girl in the book is brave and kind when her grandmother becomes seriously ill. Kindness and courage are positive character developments that all children can benefit from.
The simple words and accompanying art also deliver a calming approach to accepting changes, such as seeing Nana with an oxygen tank and hose. The story normalizes difficult situations and transitions that are common for people who suffer from respiratory illnesses, such as COPD. Nana Plays is a healing choice for grandparents, for families who are caregivers, and for the children who love their Nana.
