Sometimes family relationships can be hard work but My Two Grannies by Floella Benjamin shows that actually the solutions are often quite simple. This is a wonderful book for children who have family members from different parts of the world or with different cultures. It's a great way for parents and teachers to get children thinking about diversity and recognising that whilst we may be different we all have good things to share with each other.
