“All Kinds of Families!” explores many different kinds of “families” like eggs in a carton and chalk for a blackboard.

Cayden:  “I think everything has a family but I didn’t know that before!  Everything that is the same in a group is a family like all of the pencils, or the sticks, or silverware.  I liked the pictures in the book.  There were a lot of different things to look at.  My favorite part was when all of the things were on shelves and I found all of the families.”

Max:  “I liked the page with the moon and the stars.  They are a family the book said.  I liked the tree house picture.  I wish we had one of those!”

Parent’s comments:
“All Kinds of Families!” by Mary Ann Hoberman is a creative book showing the relationships among different items and of actual human families.  The illustrations were fun and complemented the text nicely.  I like books that make my children think and this was definitely one of them!
