About the book:

My Magic Family is a picture book story about the magic of ALL families.

There are billions of families, a million ways to be. But in my magic family it's Mummy, Mum and me!  Let's tell our family stories - fantastical and true - and we'll find out who's who to me, and who is who to you. In this celebratory, rhyming story a little girl with two mummies shares the magic of her family and discovers how magic all her friends’ families are too.

A warm, funny read-aloud book that's perfect for opening up conversations about different families in a playful, creative way.
