The Great Big Book of Families

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

The Great Big Book of Families represents a lovely diverse mix of different types of families, reminding us that families come in all shapes and sizes, from single parent families to same sex couple parents, grandparents that live with us, extended families, blended families and many more.

The simple message is that every family is unique and special. This message is delivered effectively through simple, accessible text and an abundance of delightful, cartoon-like illustrations. Subtle inclusive images of disability are scattered throughout. These include several wheelchairs, lots of glasses, leg braces, and a walker. It's a book packed with detail, humour and interest, reminding us that there is no such thing as 'normal' or 'abnormal' – we are all equal.

In terms of diversity in its widest sense, books simply don't get much more inclusive than this.
