A deeply charming picture-book for grandparents, grandchildren and everyone in-between to share.
"All the grown-ups you know have their own story. They were all babies once. Then they grew, just like you..." This charming picture-book is all about grandparents, grandchildren and connections between the generations. The two important messages at its heart are, first, that older family members often play a HUGE part in a child's life, which is something to celebrate, and, second, that we each have our own "life story" – a fundamental point for developing empathy in young children. With characterful artwork throughout, and an end-note packed full of suggestions on how to use this book with a child, Grandma's Story is a perfect choice for grandparents, grandchildren and everyone in-between to share.

The Bookseller

[…] an insightful and empathetic work of illustrated non-fiction. It invites the reader to ask questions of their grandparents, to delve into family histories and interconnections, and to consider the fact that all grandparents were once children too, with full lives of their own. Great for both Early Years and KS1
