Love Makes A Family by Sophie Beer
This short, colorful, and inclusive book celebrates the one thing that makes every family a family – LOVE.
Do one of the activities you see in the illustrations of the book. Build a makeshift tent inside and have family story time in the tent. Have a tea party outside with your child’s stuffed animals. Go for a rainy day walk and make sure you jump in ALL the puddles. Help your child(ren) put on a play, magic show, or puppet show.
Your child might observe that some of the families in this book appear to have two moms or two dads or a single parent. You can talk with them about the following:
- Some families have one mom/one dad, two moms, two dads, one mom, one dad, grandparents, foster parents, or any combination of those. What makes a family a family? LOVE. Love makes a family.
