Grammie and the bear

December 08th, 2021

A former paediatrician, Beverley A. Elliott began writing children’s books after she retired. Her first book, Greyson’s Shoes is based on an actual situation involving her autistic grandson Greyson as is her second book, Grammie’s Suitcase (FriesenPress $13.99) for up to 7 years of age. Grey loves it when his Grammie comes to visit, but this time it is even more exciting because Grammie is bringing a special friend with her. As Grammie unpacks her gigantic suitcase, Grey gets more and more excited … but then he gets nervous. What if she forgot to bring the Bear with her? Grey has already planned out the adventures that they will have together and it would be disastrous if his Bear wasn’t there. Illustrations by Anna M. Costello. 9781039115989
