Families come in many different shapes and forms -- but they all teach you how to be strong and show you how loved you are.

Alongside a sweet and simple narrative, the warm illustrations tell their own story. Beginning with Sofia Sanchez’s adopted family, readers will meet families with two moms and two dads, families with single parents, and kids raised by grandparents, guardians, or older siblings. Big families, small families, extended families, blended families, and mixed race families -- including parents with their own differences that make them unique, too.

This heartwarming companion book to 2021’s You Are Enough highlights the important message that families aren’t just the people you live with. They include the people in your school, your community, and the people you choose who love you and empower you just the way you are.

What worked: Sweet picture book with a shoutout to families. I especially loved the message of how love is what makes a family, regardless if you're born into one or adopted.

This book is perfect for those who are adopted. We adopted our son when he was a baby. We also have friends who, like Sofia's family, adopted a child with Down syndrome. What's especially heartwarming in this picture book is the illustrations of all different types of families. I loved the message of love woven throughout. The illustrations are bright and upbeat, adding to this endearing story. The illustration of the one little boy with his pet cockatiel reminds me so much of my own son with his birdy!

As a former first-grade teacher, I feel this book would be a perfect addition to curriculums that discuss families. The illustrations draw you right into the story. Colorful with its diverse representations of all different forms of families-adopted, biological, and blended.

Heartwarming tribute to the many different forms a family can take with a powerful message of empowerment. Perfect for classroom libraries and also for families of all types and sizes.
