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.

Format: Hardcover
Sibling duo Nellie and Gus, two regulars in Robie Harris’s books, explore the different types of family structure during a family visit to the zoo. The text weaves dialogue bubbles with informative text and vibrant illustrations to depict the many different kinds of family structures. Children will learn that families live in different landscapes, eat different food, and can have many different kinds of make-ups - children or no children, one adult or two, male or female parents, divorced or married. Finally, when Nellie and Gus invite their friends and family to their home for dinner, they realize that even within their own family, there are many similarities and differences. The author emphasizes that even though families can appear to be very different, they’re always trying to make each other feel happy and healthy.

This book is impactful for young readers because it promotes inclusivity and community from an early age. Even though the descriptions about the different kinds of family structures are brief and somewhat vague, the illustrations throughout the book depict many different kinds of families in a much more explicit way. Overall, the message is that no matter what a family looks like, they try to make each other happy and do what’s best for each other.

It’s clear that the purpose of this book is to celebrate the many diverse family structures that exist. However, two main problems may arise when reading this book. Firstly, the frequency of text that says that all families love one another and put each other’s best interests first is not necessarily reflective our students’ realities. Many students experience violence, substance abuse, financial hardship, and similar situations on a daily basis that may make them feel disconnected from the book.

I bought this book for my two year old granddaughter who is already a lover of books. I was delighted to find the families in the book are of many types and ethnic origins. The story line is clear and the illustrations engaging.
