This is a genuinely lovely book written for families dealing with bereavement - particularly the passing of a grandparent - and it offers a gentle way of talking about this difficult subject with young children. It's a beautiful and simple idea - the illustrations link the changing of the seasons to the life of the Grandad in the story, and so make a difficult concept easier for children to think about and to talk about. The idea works because illustrations are very sensitively drawn. The reader sees the cycle of human life as part of nature, and there is nothing shocking or upsetting about it.
Highly recommended - there seem to be very few books for small children which deal with this sensitive subject in quite this way.

Where's grandad is a watercolour illustrated book written by Jennifer Taggart and tackles the taboo subject of death. By comparing life with nature and illustrating moments shared between children and their grandfathers she brings a sense of happiness when remembering their grandparents. Death is not the end, it is a natural part of the circle of life and the memories are what live on through us.

The book draws on a personal experience and it was very touching to meet Jennifer at her book signing. This is a heartfelt project that has come to fruitition and is fantastic to see that she has managed to tackle something so difficult in such a delicate way.

I highly recommend this book for anyone wishing to explain the death of a parent or grandparent to their child or even children in general. The book is aimed at 3 to 8 year olds but we can all take a little bit of inspiration from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful book 17 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not only are the illustrations, in this lovely book, beautiful, the sentiment is too. As a Grandad myself, I now want to buy the book in paper, to "keep it by me" so that it might be of use at some later (hopefully much later ) date. This book really is a treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book and can highly recommend 5 Mar. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brilliant book and can highly recommend. I used it to explain that grandad was terminal due to a brain tumour. My boys are 7 and 5 and this made it so much easier to break the horrible news. I even managed to read it without tears.
