Sample Letter of Invitation to Parents

Name: _________________________________________________________________

Dear Parent/Grandparent

We would like to invite you to a very special occasion. The visit to our school of Brian Andrew, the popular author of the best selling illustrated children’s book; ‘I Grow in Grandad’s Garden’ along with 'The Adventures of A B C & D' or Moira Andrew, the author of 'I Grow in Grandma's Garden'

Thousands of copies of this new book have been purchased and hundreds of feedback stories constantly move and even astonish the author. Many families are recreating Grandad’s Garden’s at home and many schools in their classrooms and school grounds.

Parents love it because it helps them grow good kids; grandparents because it helps them get closer to their grandchildren; teachers because it helps them create a positive classroom environment; mental health care professionals because it helps them help troubled kids.

It helps you discover what makes children happy, sad, afraid and excited. It captures the values of our grandparents and presents them in a natural and contemporary way as readers go on a personal growth journey that’s both enlightening and fun.

Brian is coming to our school to do readings/assembly presentations/… for our children/Grandparents Day… and you are invited to come and enjoy the occasion.
