Pops is a warm and comforting board book about a visit to granddad. The bond between grandfather and child is shown through powerful images and simple text. The child and their pops explore the day–a small hand in a big one, they go for a walk, collect food from the garden to make a sandwich, tell stories, then settle down for a nap.

Pops is a starting point for conversation–the simplicity of the images and text lets readers build their own stories about their visit to a loved member of the family.
