Who’s Who in my Family?

Posted on: March 21, 2010


 

Using families of cats and rabbits and racoons along with simple diagrams, this book for youngsters introduces the concept of relationships on a family tree.

Great grandparents, second cousins and non-traditional families such as step-fathers and half-sisters are covered showing the many types of families a child might encounter.

A great introduction for kids learning about family relationships. It even tackles the “once removed” cousins with easy-to-understand diagrams.

I loved this book because it teaches the idea of different family types and especially the meaning of adoption. Many children who are adopted will relate to it and this would help them understand that it is normal and they are just like everyone else.

Here they also explain the meaning of divorce, stepfather, stepmother, step sister and step brother.

This is a very good book to incorporate a lesson on family trees especially in the primary level.
