Some children live with their mothers and fathers. Others have stepparents or live with just one parent. Still others live with grandparents or foster parents who chose them specially. But all children all around the world, are part of families--big and small, loving, sharing, and caring for one another.
This look at all kinds of families from all over the world helps young children begin to think about families "they" belong to, as it gives them a glimpse into the rich variety of world cultures.
Sticking to her tried and true formula (i.e. eye-catching photographs of people from all over the world, accompanied by brief snippets of text), the author celebrates the concept of family. She includes many of the different forms a family can take--large or small, traditional or single-parent, foster, or biological. All are represented in this book. The text clearly and simply explains that what makes a family a special unit is that its members love each other, have fun together, and are there to help each other. ...(T)eachers and librarians will be happy to have this attractive and useful book in their collections."-- Kirkus Reviews," April 1, 2000
