Lissy's Diary

A young girl learns about the importance of stories and forges a deeper connection with her grandmother in this colorful picture book. Lissy is excited to give her grandmother her birthday presents, but is confused when Grandma thanks her for the “diary.” To explain, Grandma reads her some passages from one of her childhood diaries, inspiring Lissy to start her own. Cozy illustrations depict passages from Grandma’s diary alongside the present-day reading, demonstrating the power of words to hold histories—and carry on legacies.
