    LOOOOOOVEEE!!!! Perfect. Great for any child to see other families that could be just like their own family. And great for kids to see that there are other non-traditional families out there.

    finally!! cute and fun book making kids feel good about whatever type of family they have. the illustrations are stellar!! some of the phrasing's a bit clunky but there's not much to recommend in this subject so this has to be at the top of the list.

    simply adorable! "If you love each other, then you are family." :)

    Suzanne and Max Lang collaborated on this book to create an engaging text that is relatable to all readers. Suzanne's simple language is easy to understand for all ages, and the straight-forward quality presents the information in a way that is neither argumentative or judgmental. An example of this is when she states, "Some children live with their father. Some children have two mothers." Every statement is accompanied with a "photograph" of the family described. Max Lang incorporated many medi [...]

    This book does a great job at addressing diversity with in relationships. Animals are used to describe different families that children may come from and see around them. The animals chosen for each type of family (Divorced, Single Parent, Grandparents, Step-Parents, Aunts, Uncles, 2 Moms, 2 Dads etc.) are randomly selected and display no direct correlation between illustration and type of family being described. The animals chosen are diverse in color, shape and size. They have animals ranging [...]

    Finally! I am a 33 year old librarian and this is the first time I've ever seen a kid's books that shows children being raised by their grandparents - my own familial constellation. Representation matters. And this book runs the full spectrum including adopted kids, kids with gay/lesbian parents, kids with single moms and dads (also really important!) and many other combinations. Although I was a bit sad to see one omission - there were no foster kids represented. I also have to say the slightly [...]

    Animal portraits illustrate the many ways that families can be formed. There is incredible humor in the illustrations - great and sometimes goofy facial expressions and often very funny content. For example "some children are adopted" is the caption below a picture of two sheep holding two wolf cubs. "Some children have many pets" - a hippo family surrounded by a dozen birds - while on the next page: "and some just have a plant" shows two grinning tigers, their cub and a cactus. While my story t [...]

    I love this book! In Families, Families, Families! Suzanne and Max Lang use all types of animals to illustrate every type of family you can imagine. The text is quick and humors, but it's the illustrations that steal the show. The expressions and animal combinations are quirky, charming, and entirely too cute.

    Emma
    I really, really, really like this one.Very clever way to talk about all different families. Smart as well with some jokes to catch on re-reading including a sheep couple who have adopted two wolves (and dressed them appropriately, of course!).Delightful.

    Love this book!! Perfect for showing a wide variety of different types of families.

    Kayla Edwards
    This book does a great job of explaining how all families are different yet they have something in common: they love and care for one another. Very sweet and well-handled.

    Lauren Waters
    I love the diversity of families shared in this book! My kids were also thrilled by all the different family portraits using animals.

    Carol Jen
    This picture book is a super sweet and adorable look at all the different types of familiesI love the last line "If you love each other, then you are a family".

    hilarious, inclusive, simple and silly.

    Opening: Yesterday we read the book Families. In that book the authors used photographs or pictures of real families. Today we are going to read the book Families, Families, Families! This book is about families too, but look at the pictures (flip through a few pages in the book). If you look very carefully some parts of the pictures are photographs and others are drawings. (Give children some time to discern which parts are photos and which parts are drawings on each page) What do you notice ab [...]

    (Diverse literature)"Families, Families, Families" by Suzanne Lang and Max Lang (2016), is such a perfect book for preschoolers about acceptance and diversity. The Langs use silly illustrated animal families, set against real backdrops, to share their message that families come in all shapes and sizes. "Some children have two dads" or "Some have one mom" are short messages that will keep kiddos interested and engaged. The "snapshots" of each animal family are so well done in a repetitive format [...]

    Suzanne and Max Lang Families, Families, Families! Pg. 26 Random House Children’s Books 2015 Language: (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content-G; Violence: G;Families come in all shapes and sizes these days. Families have changed their definition from mother, father, sister and brothers to many many different things. This picture book does a great job of breaking the mold in a sweet gentle way families all look different as long as you love each other that’s all that matters. The illustrations [...]

    This was great! I loved the exploration of all the families. The art work was amazing. It was a combination of photographs as the background and then illustrated characters in the foreground. The concept really made reading it all the more entertaining. What I loved most was the sense of humor in the book. You have to play close attention to all the characters and their facial expressions to understand! Just simply spectacular is all I can say. It was just a great way to look at all the way peop [...]

    I love this picture book. The ryhming pattern and cartoon images on top of actual home images made it great! The way they addressed not just family members but pets and other household things was great as well. The last sentence (which is on top of a double page spread of all the characters) reads "if you love each other, than you're a family". I think is is a great sentiment and this book could be used to teach acceptance and understanding at the primary level. Overall, this book was great!

    This is a great story for students kindergarten to first grade. This book introduces students to the idea that not all families are alike and that is okay. It incorporates animals into the books to make the story more understandable and exciting for young kids. This book would help students begin realizing that not every family is the same and become prepared to understand and accept the LGBTQ people in our society.

    Read by Shawn:Asked questions before beginning readingUsed different tones of voice, depending on the text/subjectAnimated voiceSlightly fast paceBook details:All about families & how they can look different, but still love each other"Some people have two dads, some people only have one mom!" etcA family is who you want it to be

    The art is not only delightful, but also is presented in a unique way. I also like the message behind the story. The rhyme scheme is what threw me off. Especially when it changes suddenly toward the end. Otherwise I'd have given it five stars. But what does it really matter? I'm just some dude on the internet.

    Sheri
    The words in this picture book were simple but the accompanying illustrations were great. I got a chuckle out of each illustration and the animal families she used to show the details. I would recommend this for read alouds at bedtime or with young children, my kids giggled at all the pictures.

    Courtney Stevens
    This book covered all types of families (1 mom, 2 dads, grandparents, cousins, 10 siblings, no siblings, etc.) in a loving, accepting, truthful way. If there is love, there's a family. Great for discussion about differences and acceptance of all kinds of families. Picture book.

    Scott
    Well this is just lovely. It's simple and cute and dances along nicely. And the illustrations have so much characters. Now I have two reasons to love Max Lang along with The Gruffalo.

    Joseph Crupper
    Good for child indoctrination.

    Catherine Austen
    Very sweet, fun to read. Love the whole sensibility of it. The illos are great--hilarious expressions, so much variety, nice colour. Really sweet message. Belongs in every library.

    Ashlin Edmisten
    I really like all the different family types this book covers. It's great.
