Out For Our Children Celebrating LGBT History Month in Early Years Louise Davies
Out For Our Children is a group of London lesbian parents producing books and resources that reflect our children's lives and family experiences. A child needs love, support and acceptance for who they are and where they come from and OFOC believe that inclusive books and other materials are an essential part of that support.

Introduction Read the story. To Discuss What happens in the story? What was good about having a hundred mummies? What was not so good? Did the little girl really have a hundred mummies? How many mummies did she really have? If I Had A Hundred Mummies
Collage There is a page in the book which is a collage of all of the mummies junk. Ask the children what kind of things their mums/carers like to keep. Provide them with magazines and junk materials to create their own collages (show them the page in the book for inspiration and point out that they can layer things on top of each other). Wonderful Mummies Ask the children to draw their mummy/mummies (or carer) and cut her/him out. Then stick them at the beginning of a long strip of paper, slowly adding to them one by one and forming a queue just like in the book. Display this and encourage mummies to come and take a look!
