We Are Family!

All about dad's ex-wife's brother's new girlfriend's child and other relatives
13,90 EURO

The so-called picturebook family consisting of mum, dad and children – it still exists of course, but we all know that there are many other forms of family life. And nowadays, these different types are just as normal: single parent families, patchwork families, same-sex parenting, step-families, rainbow families and adoptive families. All these and more are covered here, as well as blood relationships and elective affinities – and the likelihood of inheriting granddad’s nose. Reading through this entertaining book with its humorous illustrations, you’ll inevitably find yourself telling stories about your own family and wondering what makes it so unique. Because in the end, we are all part of a family that only exists once in the whole wide world.

Lively, cheerful, and full of factual information – at long last, here is a book about the many new and diverse family forms.
