Welcome to the Family

Publisher: Frances Lincoln


Children are naturally curious about their own and other people's families and perhaps most of all about where they come from.

Whether a child has a mum and a dad, lives with a step-parent, is adopted or fostered, was born as a result of IVF or surrogacy or perhaps has two mums or two dads, they will find reassurance and familiarity in this thoughtful and informative picture book exploring family life in the 21st century.

Fabulously comprehensive yet easily accessible, Welcome to the Family will be indispensable to anyone looking to promote understanding of diversity. Attractively and humorously presented with brilliant explanatory illustrations, this book may be of particular interest to nurseries or other childcare providers but would also make a great addition to any home library.
