Families Around the World
Product Number: U86577
This book allows young readers to visit with fourteen children, each from a different country, to learn about their families. There is variety in the heads of the families as well: a single parent, multiracial parents and same-sex parents. For all the children's different experiences, however, it is clear how much their lives have in common with one another, and likely with the book's readers. Adding to its value as a teaching tool are suggestions for lesson plans built around the book, as well as a glossary and pronunciation guide for foreign words. PreK-Grade 2.
