Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs belongs in rarified air, among the best picture books that I have ever read. It is a marvelous example of the height to which such a simple story can soar, and how an author's honest emotion can fill our hearts and minds even when few words are used. Drawing on reflections of his own childhood, Tomie de Paola's Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs is a beautiful story of the circle of life; I feel that it is written in a way to help a child deal with the loss of people whom he loves.

It was a wonderful book when I was young, and just as wonderful as I grew older

Tommy is four years old, and he loves visiting the home of his grandmother, Nana Downstairs, and his great-grandmother, Nana Upstairs . It was a wonderful book when I was young, and just as wonderful as I grew older. as I'm now in my mid twenties, when I want to think of her, I read the book.

Four-year-old Tommy enjoys his relationship with both his grandmother and great-grandmother, but eventually learns to face their inevitable death.
This is a wonderful tale of a 4-year-old boy's close relationship with his 94-year-old great-grandmother. His great-grandmother lives in the upstairs bedroom of the house with his grandmother and grandfather, who play a lesser role in the book. The little boy has a weekly routine of visiting "Nana Upstairs" and sharing mints with her. It is nice to see an elderly person being cared for in the home of relatives rather than in a nursing home! She is so frail that she can't sit upright unassisted, so she is tied into a chair. Don't worry; this is not a scary thing! The little boy also insists on being tied in, so they can be alike. Eventually Nana Upstairs dies. This is not over dramatized and my children were not upset about this, perhaps because the boy is comforted when he sees a falling star in the sky and thinks it is a sign that Nana Upstairs is sending him a kiss. Years later we see the boy as an adult and we find out that Nana Downstairs has died, and he sees another shooting star and is again comforted.
This is a lovely picture book representing a strong bond between a grandparents and their grandson. If you enjoy this book, you'll also like Tomie DePaola's "Now One Foot, Now the Other".
I learned of this book by reading an analysis of it in the book "Inside Picture Books" by Ellen H. Spitz, which is a very detailed analysis of the content of picture books focusing on themes of bedtime, separation, grandparents, death, children's behaviors/manners, and a child's self-concept and self-esteem.
My 3 and 6 year old sons love the book as do I! We originally borrowed it from the library but this is one we'll have to buy so I can keep up with their repeated requests for it!
The older version has pictures in pink, tan, and black. The new version has more colors in the illustrations. Both versions are illustrated by Tomie DePaola.
Excellent story for explaining the death of a grandparent to my preschooler. Sensitive to the topic without being abstract as some other options were.
I have the original edition published in sepia. It's a special story to me because I have a Nana I love so much. One of the first books written for children that discusses death, it does so in an appropriate way that makes the loss of a loved one....easier to understand. They're gone, but they never really leave.
A great story to share with your children.
Nice story but sad. A good way for children to learn about the cycle of life.
My Granddaughter loved this when she was young. I just bought it for her to read to my Great Granddaughter so they can share the love.
It's my favorite book. I love this book because at the time when I first read this to my kids their grandmother/my mother had just died. It also reminded me of my grandmother. I love the author Tomie de Paola. He is my favorite children's book writer. I was invited to my godson's baby shower and we were asked to bring a book so I bought this one.
Such a sweet book
This is a really good book. Its not super entertaining though, but the topic is a difficult one, so that is expected. I'd like to read this more now and then or if the issue of dying or death, especially of a family member, comes up with the daughter. She's now 4 so its not something we talk about a lot.
