The Lovereading4Kids comment
A warm-hearted introduction to the many different kinds of families that exist all of which are reflected in Ros Asquith’s witty and unfailingly sympathetic illustrations. The open-minded discussion of what makes a family will reassure all children about their own situation as well as promoting tolerance of differences and how they may have come about.
Welcome to the Family by Mary Hoffman
This book takes one element of The Great Big Book of Families - the arrival of new members into a family - and explores all the different ways a baby or child can become part of a family. The book includes natural birth within a nuclear family, adoption, fostering, same sex families and many other aspects of bringing babies or children into a family. The approach will follow the Great Big Book series, with twelve double spreads each exploring one theme, and including lots of humour, jokes and fun along the way.
This is a unique information book, with an important and positive message - every family is different and every family is equally valid and special, no matter how or when the children arrive.
Selected by Fiona Noble as a highlight of the season in The Bookseller Children’s Buyer’s Guide: ‘… a really important, accessible book tackling a complex subject with humour and sensitivity.’
