Product description

What is a family? People used to think a family had to be a mum and dad plus a kid or two. But today there are nearly as many kinds of families as colours in the rainbow! Some have a mum and dad; others have a single parent. Some families even have two mums or two dads. There are mixed-race families, or you might have a step sister or a half brother. Some families have disabled members. But the main thing is that families love each other and have fun together. What’s the best kind of family? Hopefully you’ll say – yours!

  • A warm and inclusive look at modern family life in all its richness
  • By the award-winning author of Stravaganza and Amazing Grace
  • Celebrates the diversity of families and the good times that they share
  • Bright, witty colour artwork by Guardian cartoonist Ros Asquith

“A charming book that helps children understand and recognise many different types of family units.” Book Nook
