What is a Family?
by Etan Boritzer. Illustrated by Jeff Vernon
This is the twelfth book in Boritzer's popular series on character education and difficult topics that challenge children's critical thinking skills. The author uses his well known style to ask young readers serious questions related to the fast-changing face of contemporary families.
Defining the ideal family, and acknowledging the real problems that sometimes occur in families, the book delves into various perspectives on social trends as they are reflected in the home. Vernon's art is very kid-friendly, and the book is entirely inclusive in its treatment of the diverse make up of contemporary families.
"An inclusive, beautiful exploration of family! This book is an invaluable tool to help children and adults understand the importance of family and to validate their own experience, no matter what their family looks like!"
40 pages, 8" x 10", full-color cover and insides, October 2011. Published by Veronica Lane Books.
