Description

Would You Believe in Mexico people picnic at granny's grave?! is a wonderful account of family life, throughout history and all over the world. Welcoming a new child into a family, growing-up and leaving home, marriage and death, are all covered in this book. What makes a family a family? We learn that family can mean all kinds of things to different people around the world. A family can have one, two, three or more parents - some might have no parents at all, like the founders of Rome who were raised by a wolf! Some families are large with lots of step-relations and others are small, like in China where parents are restricted to having only one child. Family can mean much more than simply being related by blood for children adopted or for step-families. Learn where you fit into your family and find out how to make a family tree. How might a typical Eskimo family be different to yours? How did the ancient Egyptians celebrate growing up and what does it mean to be born into a famous family? How have families throughout history dealt with the death of loved ones? Some cultures choose to mourn their loss and others to celebrate life. Find out the answers to these questions and many more in this fascinating read.
