More People to Love Me

A reassuring message for any child with an extended family . . .

This little girl’s family is huge! The only way to show how huge would be to draw a family tree. With a step-mum, a step-dad, four brothers and sisters, and a whole lot of grandparents, her family tree has a lot of branches – and a lot of people to love her.

Mo O’Hara’s warm and playful story will speak to any young child with an extended family. Accompanied by Ada Grey’s charming illustrations, More People To Love Me is a gorgeous book which shows that families come in all shapes and sizes.

  • More People to Love Me’ is a story about a little girl with a huge family. She has a mummy and a step-mum, a daddy and a step-dad and four brothers and sisters. She also has lots of grandparents: in fact, she has so many grandparents she has to have a special name for some of them – like Grananna, who is her step-dad David’s mum. Given the size of her family, it’s not surprising that this little girl struggles to fit everyone on the family tree she draws at school.
