The Duchess of Cambridge – Amazing Granny

I listened with excitement to Giovanna Fletcher’s Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast with the Duchess of Cambridge talking about her 5 Big Questions survey.

I was especially delighted when the Duchess mentioned the role that her grandmother played in her Early Years.

I have to agree with the Duchess that a grandmother can be a positive role model within a child’s Early Years. As you know, my children’s picture’s books, which depict the special relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter, Jo Jo and GranGran, will be shown on the BBC’s Cbeebies very soon.

Jo Jo and GranGran is loosely based on the relationship that I had with my grandmother.

If you haven’t done so already, please complete the survey.
