The Frank Show comes to Little Troopers Treasures

We have added a fantastic new book to our Little Troopers Treasure library. The Frank Show is a quirky, witty and utterly brilliant picture book from the award-winning creator of Marshall Armstrong and is ready for you to record your story.

Little Troopers Treasures is a story telling app available exclusively for military families on tablets and iPad. The app helps parents who are serving away from home be there for their little ones at bedtime by still getting to read the story. The children can see and hear Mummy or Daddy reading the story while the pages magically turn in the screen below.

Louise, Founder of the Charity adds: “Our Little Troopers Treasures app keeps hundreds of families connected while they are miles apart. The bedtime routine is such a special part of a children’s day and having Mummy or Daddy their reading the story makes a huge difference. During this difficult time of isolation and lockdown we are also opening the app up to grandparents who cannot see their grandchildren. We are inviting parents to share their login with grandparents so that they can record a special story.”

The Frank Show is an appropriate book for grandparents as Frank is your typical grandad, but no one has a grandad like him…

If you had to stand up and talk, for one whole minute, about a member of your family, who would you pick? Everyone else chooses really cool people, like Tom’s Uncle Marlon who plays drums in a band, or Hannah’s mum with her company car. But there’s nothing cool about grandad Frank… or is there?

In this hilarious, wise and heart-warming story, awesome new picture book talent David Mackintosh shows with a supreme lightness of touch just how much the older generation has to teach us, and how much fun learning from them can be.
