Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Two basic books that survey the types of relationships in which people share their lives today. What is a Family? examines the concept, the reasons for living in such a social grouping, and the changes that can affect the individuals involved. The companion text, What Kind of Family Do You Have? discusses the nuclear, extended, adoptive, single-parent and foster family focusing on the interpersonal relationships that make them function. Clearly and positively written, the texts are honest in their discussions of the joys and the conflicts in such arrangements. Resembling a photograph album, the watercolor and ink illustrations show multicultural diversity and reflect a variety of modern familial activities. Useful general introductions that fill a need; purchase one or both depending on library needs.
