Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-This book sets out to reassure children: "Wherever you live, wherever you go, there are all kinds of families." As readers journey to the zoo with Nellie, Gus, and their family, they learn about where people live, what they eat, their habits and hobbies, and how their families are composed, including references to single parents and same-sex couples. The prose is unadorned and economical, but gentle, and perfect for very young children. Digitally created images are bright and welcoming and feature a host of multicultural characters and diverse families. The conversations between Nellie and Gus featured in speech bubbles alongside the illustrations sweetly reinforce the messages in the broader text: "Right, Gus. Don't worry. I can be your big sister and your friend. And I am!" This book should find a place in classroom libraries, guidance offices, and public libraries.-Alison Donnelly, Mississippi Valley Library District, Collinsville, ILα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

This colorful, large-format picture book looks at families, all kinds of families, and all kinds of diversity. Families live in different places, eat different foods, and enjoy doing different things together. They have different numbers of children, who might be adopted, and different combinations of mothers and fathers, who might get divorced and possibly remarry. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, foster parents, and pets are family, too. The color of different family members’ hair, eyes, and skin may vary. They may sometimes be mad or sad, but families really do love one another. Teachers and parents looking for a picture book about diverse families will find this an obvious choice, with its clearly written, inclusive text and its large, cheerful illustrations, which show up well from a distance. At the same time, some will be put off by the book’s tone, which is unswervingly upbeat and purposeful. Still, a useful addition to library collections. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan

We first took this book out of the library and after reading it many times I decided we should own it. It's a great way to expose children to families, people and ways of life that are different from what they know. We want to make sure our daughter is open minded and aware that we are all equal regardless of our skin color, sexual orientation, or family make up. This book is a great way to introduce that idea to children in an age appropriate way. And, our three year old loves it. I highly recommend it.

My daughter brought this book home from a school book fair last year and both of my kids (ages 6 and 4, boy and girl) love reading it and talking about all the different kinds of families there are in our lives. I'm also a social worker and work with lots of kids from all kinds of families. I think this is a fantastic book for any child, but especially for the kids that I work with daily who are looking for some confirmation that their "different" family configuration is normal and wonderful. I'm buying this book right now for another one of the families I work with.
