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.

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

There's another page where the author doesn't quite hit the nail on the head -- the sentence is, "Some children live with their mommy part of the the time and with their daddy part of the time." While that's certainly true, I'd make this even more inclusive by rephrasing it to "Some children live with one parent part of the the time and with their other parent part of the time." I know of some same-sex couples who split custody of their children, so this revised sentence would also include them.
These are fairly picky points. Overall, I really do like this book, as well as others by this author.
