Nanna's Button Tin

By Dianne Wolfer
Illustrated by Heather Potter

I love nanna's button tin. It is full of stories.

Nanna’s button tin is very special. It has buttons of all shapes and sizes and they all have a different story to tell. But today, one button in particular is needed. A button for teddy. A beautiful story about memories and the stories that shape a family.

  • Gorgeous text by award-winning author Dianne Wolfer - perfectly depicting the relationship between and grandchild and nanna.
  • Heather Potter's illustrations are full of emotion and warmth.
  • A great way to introduce young readers to the idea of memory and storytelling.
