This fun, inclusive board book celebrates the one thing that makes every family a family…and that’s LOVE.

Love is baking a special cake. Love is lending a helping hand. Love is reading one more book. In this exuberant board book, many different families are shown in happy activity, from an early-morning wake-up to a kiss before bed. Whether a child has two moms, two dads, one parent, or one of each, this simple preschool read-aloud demonstrates that what’s most important in each family’s life is the love the family members share.

The true meaning of family: As Sophie Beer herself says, “We’ve specifically tried to make the focus of the illustrations the acts of everyday love that caregivers and parents give to their kids. The fact that the love and hugs are coming from two dads, two moms, or grandparents is incidental to the love itself!”

Rainbow-bright: The inclusive joy of this book beams from every page. Kids of diverse races and with same-sex parents, married or single parents, or raised by grandparents will all see their families depicted here.

Just the right gift: This book is the perfect choice for many occasions, including Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Pride Month, and baby showers.

Sophie Beer completed a dual degree in Law and Creative Industries with distinction at Queensland University of Technology, but found the whole law thing completely wrong for her and now works primarily in children’s and editorial illustration. Reveling in color, shape, and texture, she lives by one simple rule: Art should never be boring. When she’s not illustrating and writing, she thinks a lot about plants, animals, music, and books.
