Reviews

"Families is truly a celebration of diversity. . . . [It] should find a place in day-care centers, preschools, libraries, and homes, as it provides adults with a vehicle to address the beauty of difference before youngsters begin to think it is a problem."-Booklist

"Vibrant photographs-especially action shots-will capture children's attention, build language skills, and, one hopes, start conversations."-Kirkus Reviews

"Winsome, clear photographs are accompanied by brief, large-font text. This celebration of differences is further enhanced by the inclusion of women in head scarves, a dad in a wheelchair, and multigenerational groupings. . . . A great way to introduce the concept of diversity among families."-School Library Journal

"This book emphasizes the importance of a strong family narrative formed through conversations between family members across generational lines. Illustrating the book with Rotner's always-amiable color photographs of families . . . strengthens this emphasis and showcases the diversity of experiences in contemporary family structures."-The Horn Book Guide
