By Jenny Gillan
A story of separation and connection during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020.
The world indeed is big and scary but love and kindness seeps through in the most unexpected of places.
This song has kept us connected though my boys still miss ‘squishy hugs’. Video calls often finish with self hugs, suggested as an inferior, though heartfelt, substitute for the real thing.
A picture book based on the song Jenny Gillan wrote at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A lovely picture book that was written during COVID-19, however has a strong message for any children & grandparents who are separated.
For young writers, this book can show how a song can also become a picture book.
