This funny and reassuring celebration of non-nuclear families will help children to understand that they will always be loved—even if parents separate or divorce.

When Dad says that he’s moving out, Lily-May feels all upside-down inside. But now Dad comes on Sundays, and they ride their bikes really fast and make secret dens together. Lily-May plays more just with Mom now, too—and when Mom’s new partner Peter comes over, they play pirate ships! Sometimes, there are tricky moments—Lily-May hates it when Mum has to work late—but a birthday party with Lily-May’s big fantastic family helps her realize just how many people love her.

Beautifully written in rhyme by the award-winning authors of the bestselling George’s Amazing Adventures series, this uplifting story with a diverse cast of characters embraces all the positive aspects of becoming part of a blended family after a divorce or separation.

My Big Fantastic Family highlights the positives of a blended family. This book is geared for a younger age range. The little girl’s parents have divorced and it does touch on her feelings and hardships that come with such a big change but rhyming text helps it not feel too negative. The story goes into the many benefits of having a stepfamily as more people to take care of you, to play with, and love. With divorce being a common situation, this is a nice book with a positive outlook on how nice it can be to have more people to love and more places to call home.
