We Are Family By Patricia Hegarty & Ryan Wheatcroft

We Are FamilyWe adore this gorgeous book about families and have spent many hours poring over the amazingly detailed illustrations.

The lovely rhyme explores the concept of family, showing how they are there for each other in good times and bad. You see daytime routines, hospital visits, holidays, little household disasters and most importantly, love.

The beauty of the book is that the illustrations show ten different families going through all of the above. Each family is different but the book helps children see that although their family may not look like the same as somebody else’s, the experiences they go through and the love that they feel are all essentially the same.

The book shows white families, families of colour, mixed race families, LGBT families, a single parent family, a family with a disabled child and a family with grandparents as primary carers. Most children should see themselves represented here, which is something I love to see in a book.
