Our facial expressions can tell a lot about us. Often no words are even needed to be expressed as those around us simply read our face... a face that expresses our feelings ever so clearly. We can frown, smile, roll our eyes, pucker up our lips, raise our eyebrows, or just stare blankly with no expression at all (just to highlight a few) and all those contortions tell a story to the ones observing us.

This delightful book, written in rhyme, lovingly tells a story from the heart of a little girl who obviously watches her grandma's face very closely and loves her grandma dearly. As her grandma is tucking her in bed and in very close contact, the little girl reminisces about all the wonderful ways her grandma communicates to her just by her facial expressions alone.

Grandma's beautiful dark brown eyes, the window of her soul, reveal a lot to the little girl who is laying wide-eyed in her bed looking into it. The bond of love that a flows between the two connect their hearts and silent messages pass between them before she closes her eyes and finally drifts off to sleep. This book is a perfect bedtime story. It conjures up images in the little girl's mind of smiles, happy memories and best of all a feeling that she knows that she knows that her world is at peace. I highly recommend this book.

At bedtime, while Grandma sings a lullaby, all the girl is really interested in is the story her face tells. Grandma has spectacular dark brown eyes, and freckles in her chin. And also two little dimples in her cheeks, and a twitchy nose. She even can move her eyebrows separately! All of this tells about when grandma laughs, sneeze, whistle and frowns.

This is such a sweet story! The girl not only observes her grandma's facial expression marks, she loves them because they tell who her grandma is. Grandma is the referee in family soccer games, because she is very good at whistling through the gap between her from teeth. Grandma puffs her cheeks at the dentist to help the girl feel relaxed. Grandma's face is the best bedtime story.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
