A Family Is a Family Is a Family - Sara O'Leary, Qin Leng
When a teacher asks a diverse group of schoolchildren to describe what makes their families special, one child blushes and tucks her arms beneath her desk, fearful that her family is unlike anyone else’s. But as she listens to classmates describe their families—new babies, grandparents, single parents, blended families, two moms, and even a bunch of “terrible singers”— she comes to realize that A Family Is a Family Is a Family (Groundwood, $17.95), simultaneously unique and similar in love. Sara O’Leary’s warm, humorous dialogue couples seamlessly with Qin Leng’s lively illustrations to create a big-hearted, highly affecting look at families. Ages 3-8.
