Perfect for young children just beginning to read, The Family Book is designed to encourage early literacy, enhance emotional development, celebrate multiculturalism, promote character growth, and strengthen family relationships
"Could serve as a vehicle for beginning a discussion on mutual respect." --School Library Journal
In his typically silly and reassuring style, Parr celebrates the many different types of families in this picture book. Full color.
Represents a variety of families, some big and some small, some with only one parent and some with two moms or dads, some quiet and some noisy, but all alike in some ways and special no matter what.
