'Tommy needs a family to give him lots and lots of love.' So he goes on a search, first to a farm where the pigs are too smelly to be his family; then on to a pond full of ducks where he would have to get his face wet in order to eat his dinner. And on it goes. Each animal family has a problem that makes it wrong to be Tommy's family, until the very end when we see lots of different people-families who might be suitable. There are flaps on each page showing the different kinds of animal families, and the book is made of strong semi-card with a spiral binding that allows it to lie flat. The pictures are simple, bright and full of interest, and there is a booklet at the back for parents and carers to use. Aimed at very young children going into fostering or the adoption process, it is a tool for explaining what is happening and talking about emotionsl issues. Available from BAAF, Saffron House, 6-10 Kirby Street, London EC1N 8TS or from Amazon.
