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.

A nonfiction book about families from different cultures and countries.

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.

This book takes about different things that different cultures have in common. It does a very good job of including cultures from around the world. I like that there is a globe that shows where each country is. It does a wonderful job of portraying the cultures in the illustrations.

good picture book with limited text for beginning readers.
Lots of repetition.

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!
