I received an amazing letter from two gorgeous boys whose mother used When I See Grandma to open up a discussion about their Grandfather's declining health. You can view it here on the abcJenny website
Jen Graham is an educational consultant and literary specialist, as well as a writer, teacher and parent. I value her insights and regularly re-post her creative wisdom on social media. How lovely that she chose my book to help connect her children with the issues their grandfather is facing. As she says in her part of the letter: "children can happily read the book without dealing with the complexities of death. However, it is a great chance to open up discussions if needed."
I also love how the boys have an idea of their grandfather's history and can remind him of 'the old fashioned days' and things they've shared together like raising seeds - and how they can draw the connection with the children in my book. So beautiful!
Thank you ABC Charlie, Tommy and Jenny. Your letter means so much to me.
I shall reply when I've let your words sink in a little more.
