Review quote

A welcome addition.
--Kirkus Reviews Harris's upbeat, nonjudgmental prose explains that families can diverge in many ways.
--Publishers Weekly The prose is unadorned and economical, but gentle, and perfect for very young children. Digitally created images are bright and welcoming and feature a host of multicultural characters and diverse families.
--School Library Journal Teachers and parents looking for a picture book about diverse families will find this an obvious choice, with its clearly written, inclusive text and its large, cheerful illustrations that show up well from a distance.
--Booklist Both the message and the models should help adults start a conversation about their own families and provide children warm reassurance that "children and grown-ups and their families really do love one another!"
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
