The Lovereading4Kids comment

‘Money doesn’t matter, nor colour, creed, nor name - /In each and every family, the love we feel’s the same’: these are the concluding lines and the overriding theme of this attractive picture book. Over busy, vibrant pages a number of families are seen going about their daily lives, sharing meals, going to school, enjoying days out, and experiencing difficult times too. Each family is different: there are two parent families, single parent families, same-sex parents, grandparents bringing up a child, and a couple with an adopted child. The text but mostly the illustrations make clear that the families have much more in common than things that divide them. There’s a stylish retro feel to the illustrations, children will enjoy poring over the pictures to spot details while the message is more important now than ever. ~ Andrea Reece
