Families, Families, Families!

Publisher: Corgi

Families come in many shapes and sizes.  Some children have lots of brothers and sisters, some have none, others have step-siblings.  Some live with their grandparents, some with their aunts.  Some have two dads, some two mums, others just one parent.  Some families have lots of pets, others just a plant!

Sheep, pigs, koalas, pandas, chickens, walruses all feature in this hilarious photo album of different family shapes and sizes.  Whatever the combinations involved, if everyone loves each other -that's what really makes them a family.

Rhyming text drives the book along, each page revealing a different family portrait with wonderfully and aptly eccentric picture frames, backdrops, media.  Some portraits are hilarious, some bizarre, some simply touching, in this entertaining, experience-expanding exploration of family units.
