About the Book

A rhyming, light-hearted celebration of the wonderful differences that make each family unique.

A family can be
Any kind of number
Maybe there's one parent
Strong like thunder

This charmingly heartfelt board book is for families: families who cook together and families who sing together, families with lots of members and families with a special few, families who live together and families who live separately--for all families. Celebrate the differences that make each family unique and the similarities and love that connect us all together.
