Children's LiteratureFamilies come in all shapes and sizes and practice different customs according to their beliefs or where they live, but what makes a family special is the same all over the world. Whether children grow up with a mother and a father or are raised by aunts, uncles or grandparents, it is the love, respect, and care that make a family a family. Kinkade offers examples of how children are raised in several different countries. The author also takes care to point out how different customs portray the love and affection caregivers give to children no matter what country they live in. Little's photographs are portraits of families, some posed and some showing families in natural settings. Yet each photograph adds tremendously to the text and is captioned to indicate what country, tradition, or custom it represents. A colorful world map at the end shows where each country mentioned in the text is located. 2006, Charlesbridge, and 6.95. Ages 3 to 6.
