Silver Buttons

So much can happen in one neighbourhood in one small moment

In a seaside community at 9:59am, a little girl is about to draw the final silver button on her picture of a charming duck. At that exact moment in time her baby brother takes his first step, a soldier farewells his mother, a grandfather plays with his granddaughter, a baby is born and two friends pop seaweed on the beach.

Bob Graham's emotive story exploring the many wonderous things that can happen in one moment, is beautifully read by actor and singer Mike McLeish. Silver Buttons is a gentle story that speaks to both the young, and the young at heart.
