Once Upon a Memory

Nina Laden's children's book Once Upon a Memory is told through the eyes of a curious little boy who uses his imagination to ponder the origins of everyday things.

Nina Laden, illustrated by Renata Liwska

Does a feather remember it once was a bird? Does a book remember it once was a word? A boy is swept away to a world where fantasy and reality come together in surprising and playful ways. From the cake that once was grain to the ocean that once was rain, whimsical before and after scenes offer readers a peek at the world as seen through the eyes of a curious child.
