Families come in all different shapes and sizes. Most babies are born into a family, some children join a family when parents form a new family, a step or blended family. Sometimes children are adopted or fostered into a family while some children spend time living with other adults who care for them. In this book, the team from Interrelate answers 100+ Questions Kids Have collected from our school programs.
“The value of this book is that it answers real questions by children in words and phrases that are informative and yet catchy and fun to read. The graphics are factual and present fairly difficult concepts in an entertaining manner.” – Dr Patricia Weerakoon, Director Graduate Program Sexual Health, University of Sydney.
