Adults often feel flummoxed when the time comes to talk to children about “how babies are made.” This book with its appealing multicultural illustrations helps come to the rescue.
All Ways Family is geared towards six to ten year olds, although I would just recommend this as a guideline. The book’s approach is to have children talk about their families. Readers starts with Paula, who goes to see the ultrasound with her heterosexual parents. When Paula returns to school with the ultrasound, her teacher talks to the class about reproduction.
This book is very inclusive. The classmates go on to hear from children where there was assisted reproduction and families formed by adoption.
The book provides an introduction to talking about “All Ways” families may be formed. It can help adults to begin a discussion with children who are at that age where adults need to begin this conversation.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book ine exchange for an honest review.
