Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inclusive and Charming Todd Parr is really growing on me as an author and an illustrator! I thought this book was a perfect way to introduce the concept of family to my young students. He takes care to include many different types of families, and allow for everyone to feel included. I love how I can never quite predict what is going to show up on the next page! His books always flow, but they are not as predictable as one might think.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too simple The idea of this book is fantastic! I just wish the pictures depicted actual people instead of animals and unrealistic colour.
