Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Leedy (Fraction Action) creatively explains the concept of the family tree, which is the lesson of the day for Ms. Fox's class of six young animals. A kitten dressed in overalls holds up a homemade tree-shaped chart to name the members of her traditional extended family. Blended families are represented on the trees of some of Ms. Fox's other students: a young rabbit has two step-families; a squirrel tells of her half brother and half sister. And a young raccoon interjects that "my mom and dad adopted me when I was one day old and made me a member of their family." The book's final page lists definitions of "family words." Leedy's fictional setting and playful, stylized art add sparkle to her subject. Combining portraits and action pictures of the various families, her illustrations feature luminescent colors dominated by an intriguing palette of deep blues, greens and grays. Ages 5-8. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
This busy explanation of how to build a family tree is just simple enough to get youngsters started on the project. The story is set in a forest classroom, an engaging zoo of cats, raccoons, foxes, frogs and rabbits. One student shows off her roots, relatively speaking. In the course of her explanation, lineal terms and a variety of family profiles are outlined.
Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Ms. Fox and her class of students make family trees and learn all about relatives. Leedy has made the book relevant for today's families by including step parents, step siblings and half sister and brothers. No one need feel left out or isolated from with this all inclusive book. Ther is a glossary.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Flat, simply drawn animal characters, done in muted pastel shades, illustrate this straightforward, but not very exciting, introduction to genealogy. Sandy (a kitten) is the first to tell Ms. Fox and the class about the family tree she has made for their assignment, giving a brief identifying statement about her parents and siblings; aunts, uncles, and cousins; grandparents, great-aunts and uncles; and great-grandparents. Among the other youngsters in the class, one is adopted, and some have stepparents, stepsiblings, and half brothers and sisters. In response to a question, the teacher explains first and second cousins and closes the lesson with a list of the family words from the day's discussion. Family members are represented by cut-out leaves geometrically arranged on a tree outline-a method that is easy enough for youngsters to follow as they trace their own roots. A useful addition.-Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
Lauren Peterson
Young children unclear about their place in their family will find this book a big help in sorting out where they fit in and learning the terms associated with family relationships. The animal students in Ms. Fox's class take turns explaining the family trees they made. The first student comes from a traditional family, the next is adopted, and several are from blended families. The family-tree diagrams appear in their entirety so that overall relationships can be seen, but there are also close-ups of small sections and full-page pictures showing families playing, eating, and enjoying being together. The illustrations have a charming childlike quality, and by showing families made up of different animals, they aptly reinforce the book's basic theme.
