I found a suitcase

This story was inspired by a recent trip to my parents’ house. While looking through their old photos which they had found while clearing the attic, I thought about how difficult it is to imagine the lives of my parents and grandparents when they were young.

As a child it was almost impossible to think of my grandparents as ever being young, and I thought this could be an interesting subject to explore and spark a child’s interest in their family history.. I’m also very into exploring attics and digging up old things!

I tried to tell this story with some humour and nostalgia and include things that would be entertaining for both the child and the parent reading it.
