“A touching exploration of old age and the discovery that wrinkles are not just marks on the skin but also reminders of special moments in time.” –BookTrust

“It’s so wonderful to see a book on grandparents that sits outside the square. Grandparents are (or should be) an enormously important part of their grandchildren’s lives–and Simona’s beautiful book celebrates that.” -Kids Book Review

“Nana and her granddaughter wrinkle time together and unfold the secrets stored within the lines on Nana’s face. The result is remarkable.(..)The book is achingly beautiful — from the cover art, to the binding, to the endpapers, the feel and weight of the paper. It has all been lovingly considered. This is a story to treasure and share” -Two in a Tepee

“A sweet intergenerational tête-à-tête.” -Kircus Reviews

“Simona has a real knack for being able to tackle tough subjects in picture books, and she does it in such a pleasant and endearing way.” -Book Nerd Mommy

“This is a beautiful, heartwarming story of how our experiences and memories can define us. This is a sensitive celebration of life, of old age, something really lacking in the picture book world.(..)The Lines on Nana’s Face makes the perfect classroom tool, the loveliest bedtime story and a most beautiful choice for library storytimes.” -Book Monsters

“This is truly one of the dearest books I have seen in a long time” -Orange Marmelade Books
