A Book For All Families

February 28, 2007 at 4:38 pm 1 comment


I just got this book today and I wanted to feature it because I think it’s so lovely. Todd Parr is the author, whom I adore for his fun and lighthearted books for preschoolers. This book is titled, “The Family Book” and I love it for how it portrays different kinds of families. The message is that your family may look different, but if there’s love, and you stick together, you’ve got something wonderful. Yet, it’s not written in that annoying way that some well-intentioned children’s book authors write when a message is written in a way so as to talk down to its audience. You know what I mean by that? You know how sometimes you read a children’s book that has a message and afterwards you want to brush your teeth or take a shower afterwards because it came down too forced, too sweet or just plain weird? Well, that’s why I love Todd Parr’s books because he’s writing with a purpose, but the words are just plain lovely. Maybe I’m just picking up on his personality, or maybe I’m even projecting to high heaven, but all I know is that I really love this book.
