The Bench

Author(s): Meghan Markle

Children's Picture Books

Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex's first children's book, The Bench, beautifully captures the special relationship between father and son, as seen through a mother's eyes. The book’s storytelling and illustration give us snapshots of shared moments that evoke a deep sense of warmth, connection, and compassion.

“This is your bench

Where you’ll witness great joy.

From here you will rest

See the growth of our boy”

Evoking a deep sense of warmth, connection, and compassion, The Duchess's debut children's book gives us a window into shared and enduring moments between a diverse group of fathers and sons -moments of peace and reflection, trust and belief, discovery and learning, and comfort and nurture.

Working in watercolour for the first time, Caldecott-winning, bestselling illustrator Christian Robinson expands on his signature style to bring joy and softness to the pages, reflecting the beauty of a father's love through a mother's eyes.

With a universal message, this thoughtful and heart-warming read-aloud is destined to be treasured by families for generations to come.
