A host of silly animals in dozens of combinations demonstrate all kinds of nontraditional families! Cleverly depicted as framed portraits, these goofy creatures offer a warm celebration of family love.
Older readers know how this thing called normality doesn't exist, since every family has various issues and unique scenarios. I love how this book celebrates the differences in families, with emphasis on the adults at the head of the family since not everyone has a mother and father looking after them. Sometimes it is grandparents. Other times it is step-parents, or two mothers. Yet whoever you live with and wherever you live, every single family is united by love (even if it isn't always clearly demonstrated). This is a perfect way of explaining what life is like in reality – often different, sometimes challenging, but filled with love and kindness.
