PICTURE BOOK OF THE MONTH
Grandpa Christmas by Michael Morpurgo
Every Christmas Mia and her family read a letter which her Grandpa wrote to her. His letter is a warm, impassioned and heartfelt wish for a better world for Mia to live in. He remembers fondly the times they spent in his garden finding frogs and worms and planting seeds. His letter is a hopeful plea to Mia (and to all of us) to continue to care for and protect our precious world.
Michael Morpurgo frames his powerful message about protecting the environment in this beautiful personal story about a grandpa’s wish for his granddaughter to live in a better world.
