Grandma Do I Have a Home
by Linda L Cornish




This book blossomed from a teaching moment when a little one asked, “Grandma, do I have a home?” As a grandmother wanting to put a child’s mind at ease, this story was created. The story is about a young child named Blake who has always lived with Mom and Dad. Blake becomes troubled when his parent’s divorce leaves him worrying about what happens when his parents do not live in the same house.

As you hold this book, I hope you recognize the comfort, the security, and the love that Blake comes to realize as he learns his life is full of many homes, each holding a special place for him.


"Grandma, Do I Have A Home? is a sweet story that reassures young children that they still belong somewhere after family separation. We have many homes, and each one has someone who loves us and waits for our visit. The story follows the format of a young boy opening several doors within a book, and behind each door he finds a picture of him with someone important to him. Children will relate to the various names for relatives used in the book."

Testimony from Kindergarten Teacher

"The comments were both from children with and without divorce/separation in their lives. The children were SO into your conversation."

Testimony from 6 Kindergarten Children

"My favorite part was how we got to guess what was behind the different coloured doors. My favourite is blue."

"I loved the part about the soup. It sounded sooooo yummy."

"I LOVED the book because I love to spend time with my Grandma."

"I liked learning about the different ways people say Grandma and Grandpa. I have a Nana and Papa too."

"I love my Nan and Pop. I didn't know their home was my home, too. I'm gonna visit my Nan and Pop soon."

"My dad has his home. My mom has her home. I have two homes. Hey that's cool!"

I grew up in Dawson Creek, a small farming community in northern British Columbia, Canada. I later moved to Edmonton, Alberta, to be closer to my two daughters and their families. My days are filled with fun working as an Education Assistant helping children achieve their full potential. When I am not at school I am lost in a world of writing poetry and lyrics, and when I am very lucky, I am spending time with my amazing grandchildren.

My philosophy is that children should be encouraged to believe in themselves. They are amazing young people who do see, hear, and care, and they deserve to be listened to and protected. Children are the world's precious gifts.
