The hug blanket – By Chris Gurney, illustrated by Lael Chisholm

A young girl and her little brother love to visit their nana. Nana bakes things with them, plays games and takes them to the beach. They collect seashells together and line the pathway home with their treasures. Nana knits blankets for them all, including special motifs within the designs.

One day nana dies, and after the funeral the little girl hugs her special blanket and cries. She realises the blanket is full of special memories that will be with her even though nana is not.

A book to help children understand grief, Chris Gurney’s sensitively written prose shows children it’s okay to feel sad, and that we can find comfort in simple things.
