All Kinds of Families! by Mary Ann Hoberman


All Kinds of Families! by Mary Ann Hoberman

Families, families all kinds of families, Families are people and animals, too. But all sorts of other things fit into families. Look all around and you'll see that they do! With rollicking rhyme, beloved children's book author Mary Ann Hoberman shows readers that families, large and small, are all around us. From celery stalks to bottle caps, buttons, and rings, the objects we group together form families, just like the ones we belong to. And as we grow up, our families grow, too. Paired with lively and colorful illustrations by celebrated French illustrator Marc Boutavant, All Kinds of Families! is a celebration of families and our role in them.
