Who's Your Real Mum? by Bernadette Green, illus. by Anna Zobel
A beautifully illustrated story, written with a light and humorous touch, that celebrates nontraditional families and captures exactly what lies at the heart of family life — love.
‘Elvi, which one is your mum?’
‘They’re both my mum.’
‘But which one’s your real mum?’
When Nicholas wants to know which of Elvi’s two mums is her real mum, she gives him lots of clues. Her real mum is a circus performer, and a pirate, and she even teaches spiders the art of web.
But Nicholas still can’t work it out! Luckily, Elvi knows just how to explain it to her friend.
A tender and joyful tale that works through the reality of different sorts of families … a story of love and acceptance without a hint of preachiness.’
JANE GRAHAM, BIG ISSUE ‘BOOKS OF THE YEAR’
‘This is a funny, tender story … It’s a thoughtful, playful tale that celebrates non-traditional families. Use it as a gentle starting point for your own classroom discussions.’
‘This warm, imaginative picture book has a clear message that, with same sex parents, both mums or dads are childrens’ ‘real’ parents, and in fact parenting is about so much more than biology.’
