Format: Hardcover
I absolutely love Todd Parr's work, both in his books and his videos. No matter what subject he's writing about, or speaking about, behind it all is the universal theme of diversity and acceptance.

With THE FAMILY BOOK, children and parents learn that families come in all shapes and sizes. Some families are large, some small. Some all look the same, some look different. Some families have children who are adopted, while some families even have two moms or two dads. Regardless of how your family is made up, all families share some of the same things: they like to hug, they like to celebrate together, and sometimes they're even sad together.

What a great way to teach tolerance! The bright, bold illustrations and easy-to-read pages are perfect for both beginning readers and older children, and the story is even better when read aloud with a parent -- or two!

This is another keeper for your collection!

My Daughter and I really loved this book. It has wonderful colourful illustrations and lots of different ideas of what families are like. It's quite simple with just a short amount of words but really does get the idea that families come in all sorts of shapes.

Excellent!

I bought this book because my niece (2 1/2) was learning about families at nursery and she was coming into contact with families which were not the traditional 'mum and dad' and asking questions.

I loved this book because it was colourful, simple, brilliantly illustrated and perfect for when kids are a bit older as a first time reader. The illustrations are bold and bright. I found this simple book a great way of opening discussions while being non controversial.

LOVE IT

The Family Book is great for introducing children to all the different kinds of families out there and gives the message 'All families are different and yours is completely normal.'

One thing to keep in mind is that this is an American book so it does refer to 'mom' and 'colors'. If that doesn't bother you too much then it's definately worth buying, it has lovely bright colours that'll please a baby or young child.

i love this book. it fosters acceptance of difference so good for any child. we adopted our children and i like that it does not make a big deal about this and talks alot about other types of family too...'some families have 2 mummys, some 2 daddys, some families look the same, some families look different, some families look like their pets....' etc etc. Then right in the middle 'some families adopt'. Thoroughly recommend
