Review

Rich with ethnic diversity... The book is sturdy and small enough for young children to enjoy on their own. Recommended.--Shannon Nesdoly"Canadian Materials, Vol. 5, No. 14" (03/12/1999) While the photographs demonstrate how diverse families can be, the text shows how families are the same.--Shannon Nesdoly"Canadian Materials" (03/12/1999) The book is rich with ethnic diversity and portrays a variety of families and family groupings.... The photographs... are bright, clear, and boldly framed in red... The simple text explores togetherness and starts and ends with the theme of love. While the photographs demonstrate how diverse families can be, the text shows how families are the same. Questions are included to encourage discussion between an adult and a toddler, although the book is sturdy and small enough for young children to enjoy on their own as well.

The fifteen photographs, taken by professional photographer Susan Huszar, are bright, clear, and boldly framed in red. Families are shown in several everyday situations including doing chores, walking, reading and biking. Christmas and a birthday are also celebrated. The simple text explores togetherness and starts and ends with the theme of love. While the photographs demonstrate how diverse families can be, the text shows how families are the same.
