A FAMILY IS A FAMILY IS A FAMILY
By Sara O'Leary. Illustrated by Qin Leng. Families of every shape, size, and kind of relation are celebrated in this heartwarming story, affirming that as long as a family is full of caring people, it is special. When a teacher asks her class what makes their families special, the young narrator is afraid to share that she lives in a foster home. After she listens to classmates variously describe being raised by a wonderful grandmother or by two dads or with many step siblings, she is no longer afraid. Grades Pre-K–2. 8½" x 10".
