Description of this Book

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. Perfect for readers ages 7 and up.

Author's Bio

Mick Manning (Author) Mick Manning (born in Yorkshire, England, 1959) and Brita Granstrom (born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, 1969) work together as a team sharing the illustration and text. They have been producing award-winning non-fiction picture books for almost twenty years. They show that the best non-fiction for children can be scholarly, albeit with a light touch, and can have some of the imagination-stretching qualities of fiction. They are well known for their exciting performances involving readings and live drawing using overhead camera projection (often involving participation from members of the audience) all mixed with an audio-visual presentation. They appear on a regular basis at major UK book festival venues such as Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh International Book Festival. They have appeared at The Royal Society Science Festival and have celebrated The Big Draw at various venues including The Imperial War Museum. They have worked closely to support libraries and schools, performing voluntarily to school classes in the UK and Sweden and have also attended the American Library Conference and visited US schools. Many of Manning & Granstrom's books are translated into a number of languages, including Chinese, German, Greek, Danish, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish and Slovakian. For the last 12 years Mick & Brita have created, written and illustrated a monthly 5-page gentle pre-school series called 'Max and Kate' for the critically acclaimed US children's magazine Ladybug. http://www.mickandbrita.com Selection of Franklin Watts books: The World Is Full of Babies!
