About the Book
While three-year-old Amaris waits for the arrival of a new baby brother or sister, she spends time with her grandmother, "Nana B." The make-believe Amaris conjures is extraordinary, and the extent to which she will go to keep her grandma from taking a nap is hilarious. This book was written so that in the years to come, Amaris will have a glimpse of her delightful self and will remember her playtimes with Nana B.
