Celebrate World Book Day 2023 with Grace and the Grumblies

Grace and the Grumblies is a children’s book commissioned by CAP to raise awareness of the financial struggles many are facing at the minute. It encourages discussions with children about empathy, kindness and making a positive impact. 

In the book, Grace and her mum team up to defeat the Grumblies, otherwise known as hunger pains. They learn about courage, compassion and the value of helping others along the way.

Read the book with the children in your family or gift to those with children around you and give them the opportunity to discuss what poverty means and how they can make positive change.
