Local author Shanni Collins celebrates publication of her new and updated inclusive book for families at Waterstones in Brighton city centre on June 2.
Families come in different shapes and sizes, but they are all special when they love and respect each other.
These fun rhyming stories encourage inclusion and acceptance in a child’s relationships and are a celebration of the diversity of families.
By promoting diversity and understanding in family life and elsewhere, these stories support a positive approach to life at a young age, which fosters strong mental health and well-being.
Each page is dedicated to a different family, with stories exploring adoption, fostering, disability, race, gender and illness.
Filled with humour and delightfully illustrated, children will love reading this book again and again with friends, family and in school.

The illustrations in this new hardback book are a delight, colourful and engaging with a supporting article from a famous child physiologist about the important of inclusive and positive role models for our children, us and our future.
Collins’s Brighton launch is the next glorious rainbow step to provide young people with books which affirm their own lives and those of the people around them
