All Kinds of Families!
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers • 2009 • 40 pages • ISBN: 978-0-3161-4633-3
illustrated by Marc Boutavant
In rollicking rhythm and rhyme, this new book shows readers that families, large and small, real and fantastic, are all around us. From celery stalks to pocket change, from beach shells to sticks and stones in the yard, the objects we group together can form families, just like the ones we belong to. In his first American picture book, popular French illustrator Marc Boutavant has joined with Hoberman to create an exuberant world overflowing with bright and beautiful objects guaranteed to set young imaginations flying!
Students’ family structures vary now perhaps more than ever before. It’s therefore important for teachers to be inclusive of all types of families when it comes to communication, assignments and many other aspects of classroom life. Read more at Education World.
