Imagine a house with many rooms, whose walls each have a different color or wallpaper, accenting a family portrait hanging there. Moms, dads, sisters, brothers — and even Great Aunt Sue — appear in dozens of combinations, demonstrating all kinds of nontraditional families! Silly animals are cleverly depicted in framed portraits, and offer a warm celebration of family love. Each portrait features a gently rhyming line: “Some children live with their father. / Some children have two mothers. /Some children are adopted. /Some have stepsisters and — brothers.”
