All Kinds of Families! by Mary Ann Hoberman and Marc Boutavant

All Kinds of Families! is a book about both the conventional idea of families and the more open definition of ‘families’ of things like the fingers on a hand, different cutlery, etc.


The rhyming prose mostly works well and I liked that the book introduces the idea of grouping/classifying objects by their common features, as well as how it helps a child to understand the importance of his/her role in a family. The graphics by Marc Boutavant (also the illustrator for For Just One Day) are adorable and complement the cheerful, spirited text.
