Nice story which describes how special families are looked by the eyes of children. In a family each one belongs to each other. Diversity and inclusion concepts. Detailed and funny illustrations.

Very thoughtfully put together - this one will make you tear up!

Beautifully illustrated to match lovely words about how family can mean a variety of things--from having two moms or being raised by grandma; from foster parents to dual-custody; from tons of kids to being the only child. Every situation is normal because everyone is loved.

"My mom says that before I was born I grew in her heart."

In this warmhearted story, each student shares what makes their family special. A charming portrait of the many types of families of our diverse society.

Sara O'Leary and Qin Leng are an incredible picture book duo.
