Today, children live in many different family structures. Many children live in two-parent households but a large percent have parents who are divorced. Roughly 23% of children are living with single mothers, 10% are raised by a grandparent, 6% are raised by same-sex couples, 2.5% of children are adopted, and foster children move into homes. Households, step-families, religions, and races blend in many families.
What is consistent is that family … is family and children ‘win’ when they honor and celebrate their unique family and when they recognize their personal value in that family.
We all know that family life can also be difficult sometimes. This book encourages children to express themselves and learn ways to face challenges—both inside their family and in their larger communities.
Family is our first and closest ‘community’. It is where we learn and practice getting along with others and nurturing relationships. This book helps children and family members practice healthy habits that will serve them in their relationship with family, friends, and community throughout their lives.

"We all know family is important, but this book helps remind us how special and unique each of us are in the ways we share and experience our gift of family. This book is an excellent way for homes, communities and businesses to stress the importance of family in our lives. Sabin’s book is fun, entertaining and engaging; I hope it ignites a focus on family and is shared far and wide."

"This intriguing book for young people motivated a much older person--me-- to think anew about what family is."
