PostHeaderIcon Every Family is Different. Every Family is the Same (Alternative families / LGBT)

kindle coverChildren grow up in families that, on the surface, might look different. This makes Sally wonder why she has a brother when her friend has a sister, and this leads to a touching and moving story looking at the different families we find in the present day, all localised around Sally’s street and her own family.

Children who have same-sex parents, who are being brought up by grandparents, who are in large families, mixed-race families, children in foster care will all find households they can relate to in this charming story, which normalises and celebrates difference, while looking for similarities between the people who are portrayed.

Every Family is Different. Every Family is the Same is available on Amazon Kindle, and will soon be available in paperback and hardback, too. Subscribe to this site and follow us on Twitter so you don’t miss it!

This book was chosen as it looked just the thing to help me with my dissertation. I was not disappointed. It is written in a sensitive way and is suitable for children between 2 and 5.

It is excellent in a preschool environment when introducing diversity within families to children.

“Marie Has a Party! The Language of Food, Family and Friends” is part of the “French for very young children” series by children’s author Poppy Archer.

This book is a wonderful way for children to learn a language while having fun and enjoying an age-appropriate story. When reading this French – English bilingual picture book, kids will not feel like they are “studying”: they will simply love to hear of the people at Marie’s birthday party, and what their favourite foods are.

The story is told in both English and French. Each part of the story is illustrated by a picture, and the two languages can be read in parallel or on their own.

Young children pick up new languages very naturally, so introducing a second language to them at an early age is an ideal way to start to develop their skills. “French for very young children” books are written by a native English writer who is also fluent in French. They are translated into French by a native French speaker, to ensure accuracy.

Children will learn the vocabulary for numerous foods, as well as different friends and family members. It is best suited for children between the ages of 2 – 6 years old.
