Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
What does a family consist of? If a child is asking who belongs in their family or why someone else's family is different from their own, then this book in the "Families" series is the perfect book to answer those questions. It tackles these questions with colorful pictures and easy to understand words. Each picture helps to define and explain the concepts the author is talking about. Specific words throughout the book are highlighted and then defined on a page at the back of the book. A family tree further showcases how a family might be formed. Notes at the back guide parents or teachers with reading and explaining the book to children. The book would be perfect in a school setting to aid the teacher in explaining the various family types that the classmates might encounter. The large print and easy to understand words make this a great book for an early reader as well. Reviewer: Tima Murrell
