  1. ‘Lost My Name’ and a personalised book by Wondrous Inc. (based on my grandson’s name) are two I’ve purchased on-line. May be I’ll use one of my Dymocks vouchers to get this one for Christmas!

  2. I love being aparent but grandchildren are a whole lot of awesome. Being a grandparent is so so wonderful. I would not miss it for anything. Bless you my 3 special people. I can’t believe how fast you are growing up. Love you always no matter what. Parenthood is the greatest thing. Love you all ❤

  3. I have a grand-daughter who loves reading and she requested a book for Xmas and it is called Oscar’s Lonely Christmas written by Holly Webb.

  4. I would buy that book. I am ‘Granny’ and it’s really hard to find things that aren’t ‘Grandma’ or ‘Nan/Nanny’.

  5. Sounds perfect and just up my alley for reading to my precious little man when I see him at Christmas. Thanks for another lovely review, Karen!
