Waterstones Says

A treasure trove of hope and optimism, Tomos Robert’s inspiring poem is a perfect bedtime story for challenging times, filled with messages of kindness, hope and resilience.

We now call it The Great Realisation
and, yes, since then there have been many.
But that's the story of how it started ...
and why hindsight's 2020.

First performed online in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tomos Roberts' heartfelt poem, with its message of hope and resilience, has been viewed over 60 million times and translated into over 20 languages.

Written in the form of a bedtime story, The Great Realisation is a celebration of the many things from simple acts of kindness, to applauding the heroic efforts of our key workers that have brought us together at a time of global crisis. It has captured, with magical resonance, the thoughts and feelings of millions in lockdown, as we adapt to a new way of life, find joy in unexpected places, cast aside old habits and reflect on what truly matters to us.

The Great Realisation is a story for any reader, young or old, who dares to dream of a brighter future of a fairer, kinder, more sustainable world. It is a timely reminder that, even during our most challenging moments, there is always hope.

“A beautiful book, one to keep”

I love this book. Such a well written insightful poem about the tough year we have all had. Definitely one to keep, to try to explain to the generations to come what happened in 2020 to change all our lives.
