About the Book

Celebrate diversity with a picture book for very young children about the many faces of contemporary families in this companion to Shades of People.

Big or small, similar or different-looking, there are all kinds of families. Some have one parent, some have two, and many include extended family. This inclusive look at many varieties of families will help young readers see beyond their own immediate experiences and begin to understand others.
