One Family by George Shannon


One Family by George Shannon

Just how many things can one be? One box of crayons. One batch of cookies. One world. One family.From veteran picture book author George Shannon and up-and-coming artist Blanca Gomez comes a playful, interactive book that shows how a family can be big or small and comprised of people of a range of genders and races.


The breadth of diversity on display is refreshing: families include multigenerational homes, interracial marriage, neighboring households, children who identically resemble their parents and those who don't.--Booklist
