Ill. by Veronica Rooke. Serenity Press, 2018. ISBN 9780648230465
(Age: 4+) Highly recommended. Themes: Families. Difference. "Who's in your family? Some children live with their mum and dad, others live with their grandparents or foster parents. Some live in a big house, others live in a tiny apartment. With captivating illustrations, Every family is different celebrates what it means to be part of a family, and reminds us that there's something that's always the same in every family." (Publisher)
This picture book talks about the differences between families and that every family is different but that is ok. It is written in a very positive manner. The illustrations in this book work well with the text. The illustrations are bold and they help make this book a good book to use with young children to start talking about the different families people live in and that there is no one right type of family.
I highly recommend this book for any family. A student resource is available from the publisher.
