Culture makes us who we are . This pictures shows us homes, clothes, schools and family life from all around the world.
This is a good book to read to the students during a family unit. The book is realistic and shows real-life pictures of diverse families. I like the way the book includes different families from different countries. This can show students diversity and let them value different cultures. I like how the book shows the different cultures in a "western" way because it symbolizes that we are all similar in some kind of way.

A nonfiction book about families from different cultures and countries. It asks children to relate their family with other families around the world, “How is your family like other families?” It also emphasizes the fact that all families are different, whether in shape, or size, and asks the question: “What does your family look like?”
Not as good as I wanted it to be, the families profiled here are very Western, even when they don't live in Western countries. A Chinese family blowing out birthday candles, a family in Israel representing Asia.

I live in South Dakota with my husband and my two boys. I also have a dog named Quincy.

I usually do my writing on my laptop at the dining room table. Or I use the computer in my office.

I love writing nonfiction books because I learn all sorts of interesting things about our world.

I hope you read some of my books and learn, too. Maybe you will even get an idea for something you'd like to write!
