The Bible for Kids Podcast

Jul 4, 2022

Co-hosts Mike Nawrocki and Sarah Humphrey talk with author Lisa Town Bergen (author of the God Gave Us series) about her latest book Nana the Great Comes to Visit.

Filled with David Hohn’s exuberant and playful illustrations,Nana the Great Comes to Visit joyfully celebrates the ways loving grandparents help children grow in confidence.

Regarding the inspiration for the book, Bergren says, “My grandmother and mother were the epitome of grandmothers at their best—cheerleaders, mentors, gentle teachers, encouragers, passionate advocates, and prayer-coverers.” 

“My loving grandmother always thought I could do anything and supported me all my life, and my mother has championed and loved my own children well, too,” she emphasized. “They both inspired me as I thought about our exuberant Nana of this series!”

 It's always a good time when Nana comes for a visit! 

Nana is great at building forts, playing checkers and reading bedtime stories to her grandkids. 

Nana applauds dressing with flair, climbing high, and even dancing while praying. 

Most of all, Nana is great at finding more fun in the everyday moments of life.

Parents, grandparents and other caregivers will appreciate how this fun and endearing book celebrates the countless ways grownups help children learn to believe in themselves—while assuring children of a grandparent's love.
