Our kids and families deserve to celebrate every day. Gracie and Josh does that!
VARIETY the children's charity is a joyous organisation that supports kids with illness and disability, and their families. Gracie and Josh was written for those kids and families and to promote understanding for those who do not face these challenges.
Gracie and Josh are brother and sister and they are the best kind of siblings, because they are all of us. They play, laugh, support each other and while Josh faces serious illness, the core of their lives are creativity and exploration of their wonderful world.
Josh is a book about sticking together – through good and bad. It is about
unconditional love and support, about resilience and about never giving up. It
is a book that will make you turn to your family members and hug them. It is a
book that you won’t easily forget.

It is a story
which shows both the joys of being a kid as well as their vulnerability and
confusion when confronted with tough stuff, and how the special relationship
between siblings is so critical. As much as Gracie is there for Josh, he is
there for Gracie.

often—if ever—that a picture book has the power to bring a lump to my throat.
This one did it for me. Endorsed by Variety the children’s charity, Gracie and
Josh is not a story about fighting a life-threatening disease; it’s a story
about life and living—and milking every drop from every minute we have been
given. This is profound
