A day with grandad showing in simple, beautiful images the bond between grandfather and child: a small hand in a big one, big gumboots and little, some food, stories and a snooze to finish.

Pops is a warm and universal board book about a day with grandad. The bond between grandfather and child is shown through big, beautiful images and simple text. The child and their Pops explore the day—they go for a walk, collect food from the garden, eat, tell stories, and snuggle up for a rest to finish.

  • Warm story to share with very young children
  • Shows a multigenerational and multi-ethnic family relationship
  • Inclusive illustrations – no gender specified for the child and ‘Pops’ could apply to different family relationships
