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 - from a mum and dad or single parent to two mums or two dads, from a mixed-race family to children with different mums and dads, to families with a disabled member.

This is a fresh, optimistic look through children's eyes at today's wide variety of family life: from homes, food, ways of celebrating, schools and holidays to getting around, jobs and housework, from extended families, languages and hobbies to pets and family trees.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This clever book is taking a truly 21st Century look at family life... In spite of managing to reflect the reality of life for all families, the book refrains from making value judgements. No family is depicted as better or worse than any other - just different.'

'It's a book packed with detail, humour and interest, reminding us that there is no such thing as `normal' or `abnormal' - we are all equal. ..In terms of diversity in its widest sense, books simply don't get much more inclusive than this.'

'Useful, funny and truthful.'

'A wonderfully entertaining celebration of the huge diversity found within contemporary families.'
