The end of another week. We may be feeling great, or more than a little grizzly.
We may even wonder if we’ve blown it – and be looking for some reassurance.
Enter Debi Gliori’s No Matter What. A wonderful story for helping us realise that we will be loved, no matter what we do, it’s a message that adults need just as much as kids.
After all, can’t we all relate to this:
‘Small was feeling grim and dark.’
Adults would probably quite like to do as he does, showing his feelings through behaviour rather than words. Luckily for Small (and for us), Large sees something is up, and decides to find out what’s going on:
‘Small said, “I’m a grim and grumpy little Small and nobody loves me at all.”
“Oh Small,” said Large. “Grumpy or not, I’ll always love you no matter what.” ‘
Like many of us, Small wallows a bit longer in feeling sad, testing out just how much love he can get. But in the course of his questions, Small learns a lot more about just how big and strong love is.
