Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A lively, friendly introduction to the idea families by the award-winning team of Mick Manning and Brita Granström

The book does not just explain straightforward connections like uncle or sister, but also sensitively introduces the idea of step-families, half-brothers and even adoption. The book celebrates the family in all its forms, encouraging not only a respect for your relatives but also other families around you, recognizing that no one family is the same.

This book is one in a loosely-related series by award-winners Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom which takes an informative but friendly look at some of concerns of young children that relate to their immediate world and which they need to understand as part of 'growing up'. In doing so, they also provide an indispensable resource for any parent or teacher who is helping children understand these issues. Perfect for readers ages 7 and up.
