    Early childhood education material (readers) that include same sex parent families. My House, Going to Fair Day, The Rainbow Cubby House and Koalas on Parade – easy-to-read books which include same sex parent families. Written by an Australian primary school student and her lesbian mum (who could not find any readers featuring same-sex families to donate to her daughter’s school). Bright and happy, and given the thumbs up by year one students and teachers, what better way to show children that every family is important.’  There is also a teachers’ manual.
