The Great Big Book of Families
The nature and definition of family came up again and again during the Equal Marriage readings in the House of Commons and same sex relationships and families were compared with bigamy and incest.
The Great Big Book of Families has been the perfect antidote to all that hateful, ignorant language. It is a brilliantly inclusive book that shows real families in an honest light. Each double page spread explores diverse family set ups and looks at different family experiences of subjects like jobs, school, holidays, pets, food and clothes.
The Great Big Book of Families’ has been bought by the Brazilian govenrment to be distributed in all thier primary schools. 91,000 copies!
