Summary: While it is crucial that we teach our children to learn about and appreciate differences, it’s undeniable that they find comfort in seeing a family that’s just like theirs. Intended for traditional and nontraditional families alike, My Kind of Family is a series that engages young readers in an innovative, interactive process that tasks them and their caregivers, whoever they may be, to fill in names, select pronouns, and color the details of illustrations. In so customizing their books, children better identify with characters and story lines reflective of their own family situations.
