School Library Journal, November 2017
Five strong titles designed to show tiny learners that anything is possible, as seen in Different Abilities, or that not all families look alike, as evidenced in Families. Each title opens with suggestions for adults as they guide young readers through the text using picture walks, discussing the cover photos, and studying the picture glossary in the back. Sharp, detailed color photographs easily tie into the short and factual text, encouraging students to talk about the illustrations and what they show. Families attempts in its small format to include a wide variety of households; for example, foster children, grandparents as primary caretakers, same-sex parents, and biracial families. Each title in the series ends with a question designed to keep the conversation going. VERDICT A well-thought-out series and a first purchase for early learning collections in school and public libraries.
