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.
Mary Ann Hoberman is the author of more than thirty-five books for children, including the critically acclaimed A House Is a House for Me, which won a National Book Award,. Marc Boutavant has created picture books in English, French, and Japanese. He also does editorial illustration and comics. Mr. Boutavant lives in Paris.
