Welcome to the Family Summary


Welcome to the Family by Mary Hoffman

This book takes one element of The Great Big Book of Families - the arrival of new members into a family - and explores all the different ways a baby or child can become part of a family. The book includes natural birth within a nuclear family, adoption, fostering, same sex families and many other aspects of bringing babies or children into a family. The approach will follow the Great Big Book series, with twelve double spreads each exploring one theme, and including lots of humour, jokes and fun along the way. This is a unique information book, with an important and positive message - every family is different and every family is equally valid and special, no matter how or when the children arrive.
