Quick Rating: Buy, Use, Donate, Gift?
The illustrator very definitely has a style. Either that, or a style was very definitely picked for this book. Unfortunately, this leads to the people in the book all looking like they belong to the same family–at least when you look at them for a few minutes. In a book that is supposed to highlight diversity, this is a problem. Fortunately, the target age range should not notice the similarities. Especially if they are guided by a caretaker.
It’s On My Bookshelf
Aimed primarily at the youngest “readers,” the book provides a good introduction to the different types of families that have existed for centuries in our world. In a simple expository format, basically show and tell, the book takes the child on a tour of various familial groupings. It provides a good starting point for discussion and a great reference tool for “look, this is us.” For those reasons, it’s a great book to buy, use and later donate or gift.
