I would like to share this beautiful illustrated book with you today for Friday Fave. It’s suitable for most ages but deal with loss. (I cried!)

Grandad’s Island, is by animation industry professional, Benji Davies. I’m always looking for beautifully illustrated children’s books (even before I had children) so I was very happy to find Davies’ books. We also have On Sudden Hill which is charming, too. The illustrations in Grandad’s Island are absolutely gorgeous and colorful and playful when appropriate. The compositions are inspiring, too. I loved how the author deals with the hard issue of Grandad “leaving” in a soft, imaginative and touching way. ┬áSo please go check out Davies’ books!
