This afternoon I went into the studio to record a voiceover for ‘The Magical Wood’. Although the best form of storytelling (in my opinion) is reading from a book, the thought of a child sadly affected by grief listening to the story in audio form accompanied by music is a magical feeling.

This morning the kids and I took a train over to Cheltenham to deliver a cheque to children’s bereavement charity @winstonswish for proceeds raised from our children’s bereavement book ‘The Magical Wood’. It’s always fantastic to visit this amazing charity, but today was extra special, as the kids were able to see why this very special book was written. As someone that also suffered grief, trauma and loss at a young age, this cheque is something that I’m hugely proud of (a little teary as I write this). I want to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone that has supported, purchased and championed ‘The Magical Wood’. I would also like to thank @willgreenwood @spikey_mama @theunmumsymum and @father_of_daughters for their kind words on the back of the book. ‘The Magical Wood’ was written to help children understand that, it’s okay to feel sad, and although losing someone is the hardest thing you’ll ever face in your life, you can go on to achieve whatever you put your mind to in the future. I’m going to continue to raise awareness for this wonderful charity.

During his assembly presentation, in which he shared one of his ‘Otis Lemon’ stories, he had the children hooked right from the off! The illustrations are beautiful and the funny and imaginative story had his audience following his every word! Mark was able to interact with the (400) children throughout, keeping them involved and also allowing them to relate to the story too! During his second visit to the school he was kind enough to work with some of our weaker readers. Alongside the Reading Recovery teacher he not only shared his stories but also listened to the children read aswell.

Thea Lemon and her Super Sweet Fairy Godmother, is a magical tale about a young girl from Bristol, England. In this first in the series; Thea is visited by her, Super Sweet Fairy Godmother, whisking her away to the magical, Chocolate World! Her parents own the Lemon Drop Café on Church Road in St. George. The café gets so busy that every weekend Thea is sent to stay with her terrible Great Aunt Fellulla, who Thea secretly calls ‘Craggy Bottom’. Great Aunt Fellulla has curly blue hair, wonky round spectacles and yellow teeth. She wears brown dresses and dirty black boots. She is known by the people in her village as the kind of person who never smiles, doesn’t like Christmas and is always complaining about something. : All Lemon Drop Books are available to order online from @waterstones @foylesforbooks @amazon @themodernnursery @lobellaloves @beyond_the_stork @smallprintbooks and www.lemondropbooks.co.uk (click link in bio). : : : : #diversity #diversechildrenscharacters #kidsbooks #childrensbooks #childrensbook #picturebook #maiawalczak #thedadauthor #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #bedtimereading #adventures #author #childrensauthor #otislemon #thealemon #themagicalwood #igdad #discoverunder10k Смотреть полностью

I am extremely proud of, The Magical Wood. Since first publishing our special book with a bereavement story line, I’ve received lots of beautiful feedback from families that have sadly been touched by grief & loss. When I originally thought of writing the book I was unsure how to approach such a difficult subject when speaking to children, but slowly the story evolved and has turned into a book that I am hugely proud of. This summer we were shortlisted for the Smallish Magazine Awards in the best new book category. Since being shortlisted I haven’t received any form of contact from Smallish, even though Smallish had carried out the judging process. It transpires that the magazine has since gone bust and has closed. I found out about the closure via a third party and not from anyone affiliated with the magazine. It’s a huge shame that all of the entered brands have lost out on an award, and are also out of pocket from their entry fees. It was fantastic to be shortlisted and I wanted to say thank you to the judges @bevturner_thatsme @stylemesunday @steph_dontbuyherflowers @jakkidoodles @kaplinskyn @kittydimbleby @carolynasome for taking the time to judge our very special publication. The award would’ve been fantastic, but the most important award is the feedback from our customers to say that ‘The Magical Wood’ has helped bereaved children.

It’s #worldmentalhealthday and I’ve been thinking about grief and its impact on mental health. Grief isn’t a form of mental health, but it can lead to anxiety, depression and other parts of mental health that you carry with you throughout your life. As a child affected by grief and trauma it has taken me a very long time to open up and deal with my demons, but over the previous year I have begun to open up and speak openly about how my experience has impacted me. Children’s bereavement charities such as @winstonswish help children to open up and live with their grief; something I wish I had when I was a child. Incredible podcasts @man_talk_podcast , Mentally Yours and @griefcast are all helping others to open up the conversation around grief and mental health. It now feels like we’re slowly starting to see the change needed to support both children and adults. For many years I believed that the only healer for my grief was time, but I now know that the best healer is to open up and talk to someone. Thank you to @guardian @adayinthelifedad @man_talk_podcast @metro.co.uk @bristollive and @cambridgelive for helping me to tell my story. Please speak to a loved one, GP, friend or reach out to a registered charity if you’re struggling with your mental health. You’re not alone. #mentalhealth #grief #bereavement #livingwithloss #igdad #instadad #dadsofinstagram #dadtribe #instadad18 #thedadauthor #itsokaynottobeokay Смотреть полностью

BLACK HISTORY MONTH Black history month is a celebration, but diversity is still seriously lacking in mainstream children’s literature. Only 8% of children’s books stocked by leading bookshops have minority representation. Why is it that families still struggle to find books that truly represent their children in 2018? There should be better visibility and access to all types of children’s books. Every child should be able to see themselves in a book. Frustrated with the lack of diversity in children’s literature I decided to introduce my own characters. I wrote our books to inspire Otis & Thea, including them in their own adventures.
