Conversations with Kookoonaan


Not so long ago Kookoonaan (Grandmother) had a distinct role with her grandchildren. The Grandchild simply wanted to know why things were different. And they had no filter with Kookoonaan.

In the spirit of that tradition we bring you Conversations with Kookoonaan – where we look at those innocent questions that can have very significant meaning in a young child’s life and, by extension, everyone’s life. They are innocent thoughts asked through the eyes of a child and answered through the wise eyes of Kookoonaan.
