It Takes All Kinds

The Great Big Book of Families by Mary Hoffman 

This fun and fascinating treasury features all kinds of families and their lives together. Each spread showcases one aspect of home life from houses and holidays, to schools and pets, to feelings and family trees. Ros Asquith's humorous illustrations are a perfect complement  to the charming text from the acclaimed Mary Hoffman; kids will love poring over these pages again and again. A celebration of the diverse fabric of kith and kin the world over, The Great Big Book of Families is a great big treat for every family to share.

 

Birth Order

The Birth Order BookHave you ever read Dr. Kevin Leman’s The Birth Order Book? It came out originally in 1985, but a new updated version is out this year. Leman’s history counseling families for more than 30 years gives him a unique perspective into seeing how birth order affects everyday life. He looks at birth order in relation to other variables in the family, such as why a second child might end up acting like a firstborn. Interesting stuff.
