The robin is a bird that has psychological traits which are entirely its own. It has, at most seasons, absolute trust in man. It is the bird of the homestead, always ready to attend the garden worker, perch upon the handle of the spade the moment it is left or pick a worm from the ground.

Encourage the young generation to enjoy nature at its best, to explore their own “piece” of garden and to notice something new each day. Find out the creatures that inhabit this environment and appreciate their role; find out all the plants that grow and what they produce to aid the existence of man.

Feel happy and calm, and have fun as you work, rest and play in this amazing ecosystem.

What do the cousins, who enjoy each other’s company so much, find in Grandad’s shed?

Do they value and take care of their “find”?

The author, Annie, was born and bred in Shropshire. She worked in the civil service before entering education. Being brought up in a “gardening family” with a love of nature and of the outdoors encouraged her to have an enquiring mind and to keep finding out! Annie is a mother of two and recently a nanny to little Bobby Norman.

    Who doesn’t love ‘ a robin’ a magical story about friendship ,families and the garden. Beautifully illustrated. Highlighting how important grandads are and of course cousins. Lovely heart warming book.

  • Karen Littleford

    A nostalgic story inspired by 'the 'shed'.(does every family have such a shed)? This short story weaves nature and family with a clear bond between. Our relationship and connection with nature is examined and discussed in society. There is more recognition now about the benefits to our wellbeing when we are open to this connectedness and interaction with nature.

    If this book inspires a child to look at a Robin as a Tummy Bird and observe the behaviour of another creature then it will have achieved something beautiful which can last for a lifetime.

    Thank you Annie for encouraging children to build a relationship with the wildlife surrounding them.
