The Lovereading4Kids comment

‘Money doesn’t matter, nor colour, creed, nor name - /In each and every family, the love we feel’s the same’: these are the concluding lines and the overriding theme of this attractive picture book. Over busy, vibrant pages a number of families are seen going about their daily lives, sharing meals, going to school, enjoying days out, and experiencing difficult times too. Each family is different: there are two parent families, single parent families, same-sex parents, grandparents bringing up a child, and a couple with an adopted child. The text but mostly the illustrations make clear that the families have much more in common than things that divide them. There’s a stylish retro feel to the illustrations, children will enjoy poring over the pictures to spot details while the message is more important now than ever. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

We Are Family by Patricia Hegarty

All families are different - and yet in many ways the same! This book uses a gentle rhyming text to follow eight different families, celebrating their everyday differences as well as the similarities they share.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
