Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Through spare, simple text and appealing color photographs, Morris shows readers that "all children-are part of families" and that they come in all sizes, nationalities, and configurations. The format varies so that each page features one large or several smaller pictures. The text explains that "People in families love and care for one another-help one another-play together-cook-eat-and celebrate together." The book depicts family interactions in the United Kingdom, the United States, Ethiopia, Canada, Vietnam, South Korea, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Japan, and India. An index of photographs identifies each group and its nationality and a map indicates where the photos were taken.

From Booklist

Similar in look, concept, and layout to Morris' other photoessays, such as Weddings (1995) and Teamwork (1999), this volume offers photographs of families around the world, strung together along a thread of text. Each page carries one, two, or three photos, and sometimes a word or phrase as well. Visually, the book makes the point that families come in many varieties, with one parent or two, with or without brothers and sisters or extended family. Sometimes family members look like each other, but not always. The text explains that some members are adopted or living with a foster family or a grandparent. The book will be generally reassuring to children, except those old enough or observant enough to question the basic truth of sentences such as the one that opens this book: "Everyone, everywhere is part of a family."

Multicultural family photographs show families from many countries working together and celebrating. The pictures have an index, which tell where the picture was taken. Children can locate the countries on an outline world map. Families are different, but we are all part of a family is the message.

HASH(0x9e324a44) out of 5 stars Families for the classroom Nov. 25 2008
By Amy L. Barradas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I used this product as a theme week for my preschool class of four and five year olds. The beautiful photos and simple text made it a big hit! We were able to show the different types of families and how they were made up. The children used it to identifiy with their own family.

By mathnmusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Would give zero stars if I could. Bought this to pore over pictures of families my toddler. Page 27 is a prominent photo of a lesbian couple kissing. This isn't what I was looking for in a book to read with my toddler. Every other photo in the book has an accompanying description in the back...all except for this one page, p.27. It seems like a conscious decision to put that photo in and then not address it. Not happy with my purchase as this wasn't noted at all in the book description. Not everyone wants to teach gay values to their children. Want to warn others considering this book.

HASH(0x9e324a80) out of 5 stars There are better books about families. Feb. 5 2008
By Heidi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
Very similar to the other book we read by Ms. Morris. It even has some of the same pictures. I felt it was not as good as other books we read by her. Shows pictures of families with very little text. I would recommend it for Kindergarten and below.
HASH(0x9e324eb8) out of 5 stars Good Non-Fiction Selection Nov. 3 2013
By Rockergirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a great non-fiction addition to a unit about families. It includes all types of family units. It was a bit too old for my Pre-K students and didn't really grab their attention but would be perfect for a little older class.
