Working Towards a Brighter Future For All Children
Poppy’s Book Charity is a not for profit charity bringing suitable books to children with special educational needs and mental health challenges who attend a mainstream school.

The Dalgleish Family
Hello, I'm Michelle and I am a mum to 3 beautiful, unique children. I am 37 years old and I live in Devon. I’m a mummy to Harrison who is 9, Poppy who is 6 and Emilia-Rose who is 2. I am a full time carer to our children and my husband is in the Navy.
Harrison is a very comical, active and loving nine year old boy. Harrison loves to make people laugh, he is very passionate about his interests and close friends plus his ability to mathematically solve problems in his head is nothing short of amazing. April 2020 we received the diagnoses of ASD, ADHD, sensory processing difficulties and anxiety after a six year battle.
Poppy is 6 and at the age of 15 months was diagnosed with a very rare condition (1 in 55,000) called 18Q minus syndrome. Poppy is extremely funny, has a greater love for cheese and chocolate plus she has the most infectious laugh you've ever heard. Poppy has overcome so many hurdles that she is nothing short of a miracle. Poppy is at a mainstream school and is thriving in the environment.
Oh Miss Emilia-Rose, our little fire cracker. Emilia-Rose is the most affectionate, vibrant and expressive two year old I have ever met. Emilia-Rose will lighten your mood and make you smile the biggest smile. Emilia-Rose loves puzzles, playing with her friends and Moana! Emilia-Rose at the age of two years young can already sign using makaton and is able to understand Poppy as an individual.
