    One thought on “The Family Book”

    1. I would not read this to children, even though the message is sweet (understanding of differences and the positive attributes of families), because of issues with racism. The illustrations employ depictions of animals and humans of unnatural (purple, green, pink, bright yellow) colors to showcase how families are different. It attempts to tackle interracial families like this (among the many different family depictions that it gives). However, many people of color have spent way too much time tr [...]

    2. All families are unique and that is what makes your family special. That is the message this book is trying to explain to children with its big bold colors and large easy text. With contrasting ideas on opposing pages the book is easy to read and it gets its message out loud and clear. Children with be able to recite the pages within a few readings and will enjoy the illustrations. With breaks throughout the text the author throws in messages about what all families have in common, ideas such as [...]

    3. A simple book with bright pictures that explores different families. The book takes in big families, small families, step-families, families with different sexualities and races. The books gives the message that all families are different, but they all still like to "give hugs", "celebrate special days" but more importantly all families "help each other". From reading this book, children can then discuss their own family and how as a class we can support each other. It's a good way to introduce [...]

    4. This is one of our favourite books for everyone in our household. As always, Avery loves the bright illustrations, the succinct text and the simple statements. I love the politics, the gentle storytelling and the cute pictures.

    5. The Family Book by Todd Parr has been banned in multiple school districts because of the reference to same-sex marriage in the portion about having two moms or having two dads. Although this seems like a tough and controversial topic for a child to read about, it is significant. Ever since the legalization of same-sex marriage, there are more and more families that fit this section of the book. As an aspiring teacher, it is important to me that each and every one of students is comfortable in wh [...]

    6. This book is on the banned/challenged/censored book list. Parr's children's book is more than likely challenged because of the real life "issues" he included in his children's book. Real life scenarios present in this children's book include; single parents, divorced families, biracial and interracial families, adoption, stepmoms/stepdads, and different housing situations. All of these are controversial and can be viewed differently depending on one's opinion. This book does however teach childr [...]

    7. Todd Parr's The Family Book is a great way to share the differences of families to children. The book goes through a number of different family dynamics, from adopted children to same sex parents. There are colorful illustrations that engage early readers to the more advanced.Throughout the book Todd Parr describes many different types of families. He organizes them by opposites and similarities. "Some families are big. Some families are small. All families like to HUG each other!" I would use t [...]

    8. Reviewed by Me for Kids @ TeensReadTooI absolutely love Todd Parr's work, both in his books and his videos. No matter what subject he's writing about, or speaking about, behind it all is the universal theme of diversity and acceptance. With THE FAMILY BOOK, children and parents learn that families come in all shapes and sizes. Some families are large, some small. Some all look the same, some look different. Some families have children who are adopted, while some families even have two moms or tw [...]

    9. The Family Book has brightly colored illustrations and simple drawings of all different kinds of families. Todd Parr points out many ways in which these families are different, interspersed with the ways all families are the same. The book has a repetitive format- two to four two-page spreads pointing out differences in families, followed by one two-paged spread pointing out a similarity. The illustrations are simple and cartoonish, brightly and not necessarily realistically colored. On the last [...]

    10. I wish it had a more engaging title, but it's a fun book. Love the colors and the pictures are very witty, going along with the chipper-but-serious tone of the words.

    11. This is a great book for younger readers that shows children that families can look different but that doesn't mean they aren't still families. For example, the book shows same sex families, single parent families, mixed families. Even families that have step siblings or where a child has been adopted. It's a book that helps introduce children to the idea that there are different types of families and one is not better than the other. The writing itself isn't very complex and neither are the ill [...]

    12. This is a wonderful book that I believe everyone should read. It uses animals, as well as people, to show how families are different or alike. The simplicity of it is great because it gets the point across even sooner. Children will not lose interest and they will be intrigued by all of the colors as well. It is important, at any age, to read a book that introduces things like same-sex couples, biracial couples, as well as many other types of families that not everyone accepts as okay. There mig [...]

    13. 1) no awards 2) appropriate grade levels - Pre K-2nd grade 3) Summary - This bright and colorful book explores all different types of families. This book uses simple terms to explain and show that differences are okay. This book is an excellent display of acceptance. 4) I really love this book and the message it sends. A child's family life at home is a huge part of who they are. It is a great way for a classroom community to show and support tolerance. 5) For this book, a teacher can have stude [...]

    14. I guess people have strong opinions about Todd Parr's books, but I personally love them. I love the bold, colorful illustrations and the very to-the-point wording. I used this in a family-themed storytime for preschoolers. On each page, Parr mentions different types of families. The ways in which a family is made up is dependent upon the individuals in each family, and each family is special in their own way, but the underlying theme is love. I like the way Parr's books are inclusive of all type [...]

    15. This book discusses many different types of families. It covers family size, how many parents, interracial relationships, and two moms or two dads. It celebrates the differences then brings it together by saying things like, "But all families hug each other" and "All families love each other". It's sweet and simple with bright pictures. The large, simple text makes it easier for children to read. It shows that no matter what your family looks like, it depends on the love. It's an easy message fo [...]

    16. This book contains both animals and humans as the characters, however, the characters are not of "normal" color (think blue, purple, red, etc.) I think I understand why the author/illustrator was attempting to do (make the pictures void of any race), but by doing that, children can't relate at all to the alien-looking people and animals. The story itself is cute, however there is not plot, storyline, problem, or resolution. The story is interesting and informative, and it is also age-appropriate [...]

    17. I think this book is as good as a book about explaining a family dynamic to children. It's an incredibly valuable book to read to all children, especially those that are younger. I love the illustration quality of this book, the pictures have a certain quirky quality to. The message it gives to kids is great and the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because in the book they don't directly address the issue of race. The people in the book are blue, purple, yellow, etc. and it kind of takes away fr [...]

    18. I give this book a 3 star.In the book it address how families can different from the one you may have. These things can be that they have different family structures like step parents and step silbings or they may have two moms and two days. This book always them to address these problems in a fun way.Ways to use this in a classroom1)Introduce the idea some may have different family structures2)Have the students write about their own family 3) Draw pictures on the different family structures4) U [...]

    19. The Family Book is an excellent book that everyone can take a lesson from. The book helps readers acknowledge that everyone and their own families are very different from one another. Personally, I looked at It as the book the tries to help kids recognize people's differences today and be more accepting of them. People may have differences but in similar ways, we are all so much alike in many aspects. Children most importantly can take this message and not discriminate as much or judge as much a [...]

    20. An all-inclusive look at a diverse array of families, The Family Book is the latest by Todd Parr. The book's simple statements of tolerance and love are accompanied by Parr's equally simple, bright-hued illustrations bordered by a thick black line. Parr runs the gamut of potential familial situations, from families that live far apart to those with ""two moms or two dads,"" conveying the message that no matter what little differences makes each unique, a family's love for each other is what real [...]

    21. My two month old really enjoyed this. He’s pretty young so obviously the words don’t have much meaning yet but he lived the colour scheme, it completely captured his attention the entire way through (and this was the fourth book we had read in a row!). He was fighting his sleep so he could continue to look at this as I read.I love the messages in this book and will forever read it to him as he grows up.

    22. I really loved this book, by Todd Parr, because it explains all the different types of families there could be in the world. This is a good book to read within the first week of school so that your students know that their are different family structures out there. This book is a good indication that no matter what color or how your family is structured, we should always treat people with respect.

    23. The Family Book, is simple, but still casual and silly. The book reassures readers that all different types of families are important and special. The fiction book makes statements about different kinds of families. How some families have pets, some families are big, some families are quiet, some loud, and more. The book does show that all families have certain things in common, no matter how different they appear. The book is amusing and will reach children of elementary age. The book does not [...]

    24. I think this is a great book to show to children trying to understand others around them. The story shows many different families and how all of them are unique. It also shows that even though every family is unique they are all the same in some ways. The book as simple text with bright and fun pictures.

    25. This book is a great example of demonstrating the different types of families your students may encounter. The bright illustrations show the different types of families and how families don't always look alike. Families are unique and this book does a great job of showing the unique types of families there can be.

    26. I absolutely love this book. This book shows how families are all different, but they have some similarities. The pictures are great too. This book would be great for young children when they wonder why other students families are different and it helps other students know that their normal is not weird and that other people are like them.

    27. This book is a fun and colorful book that was great to read. I think the book is targeted for younger children but the message might be too much for them to grasp. The colors help make the book better and easier for children to understand. I really enjoyed the comparisons made in the book. This book does a great job showing acceptance.

    28. Todd Parr did an amazing job representing various forms and types of families that children could grow up in. This would be a great resource to use in the classroom so that children can see their type of family represented, and know that, even if it seems like an unusual type of family, that they are not the only one in that situation. I would recommend this book.
