My Family Is Special is a book for children aged from 2 to 5 years that tells us about family diversity. Spectacular illustrations that lead us into a story starring many animals, with a hundred-year-old tortoise that invites her friends to her birthday party. Her friends end up being different types of families: a traditional family, a large family, a single parent family, a blended family, a homoparental family, a divorced family, a family without children and an adoptive family. At the end of the book, they discover that, all together, they form what the hundred-year-old tortoise considers to be her family. In addition, you can play a game to find a letter and envelope in each one of the illustrations. Will you be able to find them? The text is written in upper case, which is ideal for children from the age of 5 years to start learning to read.
