There is nothing quite like the bond between grandparents and their grandchildren. The love that imbues this bond and the memories it stirs is a wellspring of positive emotion deep in the human heart for young and old alike. In his new children’s book, titled Heidi’s Aussie Adventures, author and seasoned bush poet Brian Scott taps into this wellspring to present some of the stories he shared with his own beloved granddaughter.

Scott’s work is a touching collection containing a few of the many stories he invented for his youngest granddaughter, Heidi. These tales came to be during the times when the two drove around in the car together, when the young girl would always say, “Tell me a story, Gud” as soon as the car got moving. “Gud” is the affectionate nickname Scott’s grandchildren have bestowed upon him, and the whimsical tales he made for Heidi exemplify the unique bond of love shared between grandparent and grandchild, genuinely coming straight from the author’s heart as he captivated a young and inquisitive girl with his tales.

The short tales in Heidi’s Aussie Adventures are perfect bedtime stories, and can also be shared to children during car rides and other moments when they are craving for a good story. With his work, Scott not only uses the gift of storytelling to nurture his grandchild’s imagination, but makes this boon available to countless other parents and children as well.
