Nana in the City by Lauren Castillo

A magical picture book, in which a young boy visits his nana and is frightened to find that the city where she lives is filled with noise and crowds and scary things. Then his Nana makes him a special cape to help him be brave, and soon the everyday sights and sounds of the city are not scary, but wonderful.
