Description

Product Description

No matter your size, shape, or pedigree--if you love each other, you are a family!


Moms, dads, sisters, brothers — and even Great Aunt Sue — appear in dozens of combinations, demonstrating all kinds of nontraditional families! Silly animals are cleverly depicted in framed portraits, and offer a warm celebration of family love.

From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Imagine a house with many rooms, whose walls each have a different color or wallpaper, accenting a family portrait hanging there. On a rustic wooden wall hangs the first portrait—a large family of ducks posing beside a still pond. The next spread shows three pandas in pink vests, much like the pink oriental wallpaper behind them. Each portrait features a gently rhyming line: "Some children live with their grandparents…/and some live with an aunt./Some children have many pets…/and some just have a plant." All of these appealing images demonstrate different ways of being a family. "Some children live with their father./ Some children have two mothers./Some children are adopted./Some have stepsisters and—brothers." The cartoon-style critters contrast pleasantly with more realistic elements—a bamboo plant, a slender ceramic dog, a fat ceramic cat. Families of hippos, tigers, lions, ostriches, and whales join the other family groups in the final spread. The loud-and-clear message is that "if you love each other, then you are a family." And imagine the many children who will be reassured because they have found a portrait of a family they will recognize as their own. A solid choice for most libraries.—Mary Jean Smith, formerly at Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN

Great book if you’re wanting to teach your young kids about gay families

Very disappointed with this book. Do you really need to be pushing homosexual agenda onto such small children??!?

Love this book, my 3 year old and I had good conversations from reading it. It gives a balanced view on different types of families and includes animals. It''s cute, it rhymes, and adorable. Good book, esp for kids to understand that there are all kinds of families out there. Also, a good time to start talking to your child about it.

As a mama with a solo parent household, a friend gave this to me for my baby shower. Since then I think I’ve bought three more copies for friends baby showers or little ones birthdays. The importance of teaching little kids about different types of families is SO important. This book does a great job of explaining that. There are many books for older kids but this is great for toddlers and preschoolers (in my opinion)

What a great way to make what could be a slightly tougher conversation for some folks fun and relatable! I love that they highlight the full spectrum of kinds of families and reassure kids that there is no wrong way to build a family if it is constructed on the foundation of love. Great way to safely open up dialogue on different kinds of family dynamics and inclusivity.
