An all-embracing celebration of all kinds of animal family life, reflecting the different ways children live today. From a clownfish mommy and daddy to cheetah daddies who adopt cubs, every combination of modern human family life is reflected here. It's a warm and friendly introduction to the topic for pre-school children, concluding that love is the common factor among all families.
“Overall, the book conveys a positive message about diversity, ultimately showing that these animals all have loving families, despite their differences. With such a great diverse set of structures, children will likely find an example that resembles their own family. A section at the end gives additional interesting facts about each of the animals, which may spark students’ interest in exploring more about them.” -- Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database
"...such a lovely picture book that beautifully depicts all types of families reflected through various animals. It also includes a glossary full of fascinating facts about each animal in the book." -- ecocraftbooks
"There is no doubt that mother's are absolutely amazing but so are all the others who step into a parenting role having a less traditional family makeup. While these examples are all animals I actually really love that aspect, showing children that regardless of their situation it's probably more common than they think." -- Kids Lit is Lit
"I love this as an early introduction to the differences in families! The bright colors and sweet drawings add to the feel-good sentiment of the story!" -- Little Cub Literacy
"Young children who are curious about the nuances in the world around them would benefit from this sweetly told narrative. Purchase for collections that need to strengthen their diversity training materials for preschoolers." -- School Library Journal
"Spread after spread of boldly colored illustrations of a lush rainforest, a glowing coral reef, golden grasslands, and an icy evergreen branch, among others, make this a storytime winner for all seasons. Lovingly reinforces the idea that diverse families are a natural part of our large and diverse world." -- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED
