Grannies on long haul flights
I expect there are many grannies like me on long haul flights this Christmas; worrying about the effect of emissions on the world, yet longing to be with our grandchildren.
Years ago I sat next to a great granny on a long haul flight. She told me she had made the journey every Christmas for over twenty years to see her grandchildren and great grandchildren but that this would be the last time as she had started to need wheel chair help.
Here are two picture books I've chosen for my grandsons; this one a lovely, simple, board book for the baby
and this slightly scary one, signed by Michael Rosen and with a CD of the song inside, for the toddler.
