Todd Parr has a knack for creating books that both appeal to children and boost their self-confidence. His themes promote acceptance of and appreciation for modern society's diversity and his rhymes and diction make these themes fun and memorable. In "The Family Book," Parr shows how all families share both similarities and differences. Some families are different colours but all families like to HUG each other. Some families have two moms or two dads (or only one parent) but all families like to celebrate special days together.

Highly recommended for both nontraditional families and any family/school/community organization trying to teach children understanding and openness.
