Christmas Advent – Day 15 ‘Grandpa Christmas,’ by Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Jim Field.

Today I have a beautifully-illustrated story which skilfully combines a hopeful Christmas message and a powerful warning about conserving our planet for future generations.

Every Christmas, after all the presents have been opened, Mia and her family read a precious letter left to her by her grandfather. In it, he recalls the wonderful times they spent digging the vegetable patch, finding frogs and spotting birds. But he’s worried that unless humans learn to treasure the Earth again, all the things he loved so much will be gone.

A warm, thought-provoking story about changing our ways looking after our planet for the future.
