Review: Four-year-old Keira questions her dad about whether they are a real family because she does not have a mommy. Her dad assures her that they are a real family by sending her on play- dates with a different family each day of the week. She meets several different kinds of families, including ones with two moms, two dads, adopted children, and divorced parents. She comes to realize that families are a group of people who love each other, and that is what matters most. Written and illustrated by the author, a preschool teacher in California, as part of her master’s thesis at California Polytechnic State University. Included here because it is narrated through the eyes of a four- year-old girl living with her single dad. Simple and colorful illustrations. For children who spend time with other families.
