Mr Oakes’s Garden is a cross-generational writing experience as a grandma and her grandson collaborate on short stories that introduce important life messages bound up with likeable characters. The book helps children to understand life’s up and downs through stories about little garden creatures. Each tale explores love and friendships, playing together, bullying, hopes and fears.

This book unusually reflects on a strong understanding of the health and social needs of children and young people – and is written by an experienced health professional (Anita) and her grandson (Harry), a secondary school pupil. Young children can read the stories with adults and more confident readers can start to tackle them alone.
