Editorial Reviews

Canadian Materials
While the photographs demonstrate how diverse families can be, the text shows how families are the same.
— Shannon Nesdoly
Canadian Materials, Vol. 5, No. 14 - Shannon Nesdoly
My Family is a new board book in the series "Talk-About-Books." The book is rich with ethnic diversity and portrays a variety of families and family groupings because some families "have lots of people in them, and some have only a few." The fifteen photographs, taken by professional photographer Susan Huszar, are bright, clear, and boldly framed in red. Families are shown in several everyday situations including doing chores, walking, reading and biking. Christmas and a birthday are also celebrated. The simple text explores togetherness and starts and ends with the theme of love. While the photographs demonstrate how diverse families can be, the text shows how families are the same. Questions are included to encourage discussion between an adult and toddler, although the book is sturdy and small enough for young children to enjoy on their own as well. Recommended.
School Library Journal
PreS--Each of these books explores a topic familiar to most preschoolers. My Family considers how families of various configurations interact and care for one another. My Playground depicts familiar equipment and activities. Huszar's full-color photographs support the concepts and have a good multicultural representation. The small format will be easy for children to handle but restricts possibilities for group sharing. Consider for collections where demand for board books is high.--Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
