MUM AND DAD GLUE written by Kes Gray, illustrated by Lee Wildish
I found this wonderful new picture books whilst I was waiting for my flight back from Wellington. It is a lovely story of a boy who is looking for some 'glue' for his parents who are splitting up. This would be a great book for any student who may be in the same situation. Although it is a picture book, it would be suitable for students of all ages.
A little boy tries to find a pot of parent glue to stick his mum and dad back together. His parents have come undone and he wants to mend their marriage, stick their smiles back on and make them better. This story is brilliantly told with a powerful message that even though his parents may be broken, their love for him is not.
