So much to love about ‘I Grow in Grandad’s Garden’ – Australian children’s book

[3 years +]

Have you thought about your child’s emotional development?  Are you looking for ways to get your children to talk to you more about their worries, hopes and dreams?

This book, I Grow in Grandad’s Garden is highly recommended to do just that! Written by Brian Andrew, it takes the readers on a journey, with his grandaughter, through his garden in Brisbane, stopping at the ‘think and thank seat’, ‘the let go log’ and more…  The native trees and animals really set the scene.

It features interactive questions that get kids talking about what makes them happy, sad, afraid and excited.  All designed to help you get your child used to talking to you about what they are thinking and feeling.  There are also other books in this series, I’m yet to seek out.

You can see more on the website and youtube clip about it  You can buy it online or better yet, reserve it online at your local library.

Hello friend! I am a paediatric speech pathologist and health coach. My vision is to create a world where parents can understand the real link between diet and their child's health and behaviour, and know how to create true health for their family. My two young, wonderful and sensitive sons both have food intolerances and have also taught me about my own, that I have never known about until now! Topics I have looked into for my own family's health and also from my role as a speech pathologist with children with picky eating are food intolerances, fussy eaters, creating healthy eaters and eating to prevent and ‘cure’ childhood issues such as ADHD, autism, eczema/skin issues, trouble sleeping, low immunity, frequent snot/ear infections and bedwetting, to name a few. I write many posts coming from being an exhausted mum trying to keep up with fussy boys who can only eat certain foods and also as a professional who has worked with other children with similar issues. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with my husband and two boys and was previously an exchange student in Brazil! I hope to inspire you to help your child achieve their potential through health and well-being. Thanks for stopping by :) Heidi
