Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Leedy (Fraction Action) creatively explains the concept of the family tree, which is the lesson of the day for Ms. Fox's class of six young animals. A kitten dressed in overalls holds up a homemade tree-shaped chart to name the members of her traditional extended family. Blended families are represented on the trees of some of Ms. Fox's other students: a young rabbit has two step-families; a squirrel tells of her half brother and half sister. And a young raccoon interjects that "my mom and dad adopted me when I was one day old and made me a member of their family." The book's final page lists definitions of "family words." Leedy's fictional setting and playful, stylized art add sparkle to her subject. Combining portraits and action pictures of the various families, her illustrations feature luminescent colors dominated by an intriguing palette of deep blues, greens and grays. Ages 5-8.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3?Flat, simply drawn animal characters, done in muted pastel shades, illustrate this straightforward, but not very exciting, introduction to genealogy. Sandy (a kitten) is the first to tell Ms. Fox and the class about the family tree she has made for their assignment, giving a brief identifying statement about her parents and siblings; aunts, uncles, and cousins; grandparents, great-aunts and uncles; and great-grandparents. Among the other youngsters in the class, one is adopted, and some have stepparents, stepsiblings, and half brothers and sisters. In response to a question, the teacher explains first and second cousins and closes the lesson with a list of the family words from the day's discussion. Family members are represented by cut-out leaves geometrically arranged on a tree outline?a method that is easy enough for youngsters to follow as they trace their own roots. A useful addition.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

More About the Author

I've been writing and illustrating picture books for children for over twenty-five years. Though I majored in art in college, at the time I wasn't sure what kind of artist to be. Fortunately, it turned out that combining words and art to create picture books was a perfect career for me. Most of my books center around a particular topic such as fractions, the solar system, writing, and other math, science, and language arts curriculum content. The characters and story lines help to put the subject matter into a meaningful context for young readers.

After growing up mostly in Delaware, I moved to central Florida in the mid 1980s and currently live with my husband Andy on a three acre property with hawks, herons, and horses (the horses live next door.) We love the rustle of the pine needles in the breeze, the screeching of sandhill cranes flying overhead, and the chattering of many small birds that come and go as they please.

Format: Paperback
Using families of cats and rabbits and racoons along with simple diagrams, this book for youngsters introduces the concept of relationships on a family tree.
Great grandparents, second cousins and non-traditional families such as step-fathers and half-sisters are covered showing the many types of families a child might encounter.
A great introduction for kids learning about family relationships. It even tackles the "once removed" cousins with easy-to-understand diagrams.
