The Great Big Book of Families
THE GREAT BIG BOOK OF FAMILIES by Mary Hoffman & Ros Aquith is a beautiful book that talks about the many different types of families and is a great way to start talking about how we can all differ.
This fun and fascinating treasury features all kinds of families and their lives together. Each page shows one aspect of home life - houses, holidays, schools, pets, feelings and family trees. Ros Asquith's humorous illustrations perfectly complement a charming text from the acclaimed Mary Hoffman. Kids will love poring over these pages again and again.
Hoffman and Asquith reassure readers about something they may already know intuitively: there's no one right way to be a family ("In some families everyone shares their feelings.... Sometimes not everyone in the family feels the same way about things."). Families can be big, small, happy, sad, rich, poor, loud, quiet, mad, good-tempered, worried, or happy-go-lucky," writes Hoffman. "Most families are all of these things some of time."
A celebration of the diverse fabric of kith and kin the world over, The Great Big Book of Families is a great big treat for every family to share.
