Quebec author Sara O’Leary has penned many fiction titles for both adults and children. In this heartwarming and inclusive book, she returns with a look at what makes a family special. A diverse group of kids answer a teacher’s simple question, describing their different families. As the children share their differences, they discover the one important thing all families have in common. This is obviously a story-with-a-message, but O’Leary delivers it subtly, giving readers something to think about without beating them over the head with it. Qin Leng, who also illustrates The Better Tree Fort, shares playful, whimsical illustrations that are rich in detail and sure to captivate young readers.
