I am fortunate enough to live close by to my parents, who have played an active role with my children and have helped out numerous times when needed! It means that my parents and my children know each others' characters (and quirks!) and have a wonderful relationship with or without my husband and I around.
Grandparents Day this year falls on Sunday 6th October and I thought it was time I pulled together a list of books which celebrates these special people in our lives. Having recently read Check Mates, The Storm Keeper's Island and The Land of Roar, I was worried that I was going to find more books about Grandfather than Grandmothers but they are pretty evenly split and I will add more as I find them.
