Provides young children with an introduction to genealogy.
A lively introduction to family relationships, from Mum and Dad to cousins and great-great grannies, helping children understand where they fit in to their family tree.
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.
