Recommended Family Book for Kids: All Kinds of Families


A family is not defined by what composes it as much as the collective energy produced by it.  That’s why the book All Kinds of Families by Mary Ann Hoberman is a book we recommend.  Our friends from Sweet on Books share more about this family book for kids:

What You Need to Know:
• All Kinds of Families is a book about what makes a family, and the message/metaphor is that families come in all shapes and sizes.
• It’s a beautiful book about acceptance and relationships.
• It would make a nice read-aloud for a classroom community and a family to read together.
• The illustrations are charming and appealling, just beautifully done by French artist, Marc Boutavant.
• The text is in rhyme and very lyrical.

All Kinds of Families is a beautiful, rhythmic book that celebrates what makes a family. The answer this book gives is, anything goes. “Bottle caps, gingersnaps, buttons, or rings You can make families from all sorts of things!” It is a wonderful message of acceptance and being a part of something larger. It also talks to the young reader about what came before them and what will come after them, thus helping them find their place in their world.
