Introducing Jo-Jo and Gran Gran
my new series of Children’s Books!
Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran is a fresh, new book series based on a pre-school child and her grandmother, showing the special and loving relationship that they have.
Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran are intergenerational books and colleagues say that they love the way it reminds them of their own relationship with their grandparents, making the book emotive and appealing to both children and adults alike.
The idea of Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran is loosely based on Laura’s relationship with her own grandmother
Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran All in a Week
Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran All in a Week (first book), depicts Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran counting down the days until they see each other.
Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran Twelve and a Half Days of Christmas
This is the second of the Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran books depicting Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran talk about, reflect on and plan what they are going to do as they count down the days to Christmas Day.
They remind us again about the special bonds that grandparents have with their grandchildren, focusing on the intergenerational and loving relationships that are central to positive community living.
Another incentive, if you needed one, is that 10% of all sales will be donated to the Jermain Defoe Foundation, set up by the Sunderland FC striker to support homeless, vulnerable and abused young people in both his and Laura’s families’ home country of St Lucia.
