Just the Way We Are by Jessica Shirvington and Claire Robertson.
It is so important to instill sensitivity and understanding in children, from a young age. Now, more than ever, the idea of a 'conventional' family is changing rapidly.
Families come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and children need to learn that just because their family might not look like others; they are perfect the way they are.
That is why Just The Way We Are is so important. It teaches children that as long as they have love, their family is perfect.
This terrific children's book tells the story of five young children; all of different cultural backgrounds, and their uniquely different households.
Anna - who lives with her mum, dad and grandpa.
Chiara- lives with her two dads
Henry lives with his mum during the week and his dad on weekends and holidays.
Izzy lives with her foster parents and foster siblings.
And at Jack's house, lives just Jack and his mum.
This heart-warming story, celebrates families of all sizes and dynamics, and is a great starter to introduce the subject of diversity to young children.
It covers single parents, multi-generational households, same-sex parents and foster families. Teaching children that although families may differ, they are all perfect 'just the way they are'.
