My Family Your Family

Publisher: Penguin

This is a wonderful book discussing what makes a family and celebrating the idea that every family is unique. It explores lots of types of family that children live in, including blended families, kinship families and foster families.  

It will be so important for children to see their family represented in this book and also the families of their friends and people they meet. 

As Laura Henry Allain writes: No two families are the same and no matter what a family looks like, it’s the love within that counts.

This is a really accessible book that would be brilliant to open conversations about different families with your child and also to use in a classroom setting.

It includes a clear glossary and notes for adults to use with the book, plus examples of questions to ask and an important guide to learning how to use correct inclusive language to describe different types of families.
