Families and Home Life

What is a family? Once, it was said to be a father, mother, boy, girl, cat and dog living in a house with a garden. But as times have changed, families have changed too, and now there are almost as many kinds of families as colours of the rainbow! These books depict a wide range of family life: from different family members to different homes, food, ways of celebrating, languages, pets and family trees. Stories showing family life come first in this collection, followed by some non-fiction titles which may help children to understand some of the issues that families sometimes encounter.
