Family Forest

by Kim Kane and illustrated by Lucia Masciullo

Hardie Grant Egmont. Australian, Picture Book, Young Reader. Hardback rrp $26.99

Family Forest is about one young boy’s blended family. With his two dads and two mum’s, a ‘whole’ sister and a ‘half’ sister and brother, his family seems to be unusually complicated but when it is shown through the eyes of a child it is suddenly very simple.

‘While some kids have a family tree...
We have a family forest!’

Masciullo’s illustrations create a giggle and a gasp but equally as important, they decipher adult words and concepts into child thoughts and feelings.

A great book to help explain the latest in family heritage.
