One handy little stroller is passed from family to family in this uplifting picture book celebration of community, diversity, and sharing

When Luna is born, her mommy gives her a little red stroller. It accompanies her and her mommy through all the activities of their day, until she outgrows the stroller and is able to pass it down to a toddler in her neighborhood who now needs it. And so the stroller lives on, getting passed from one child to the next, highlighting for preschool readers the diversity of families: some kids with two mommies, some with two daddies, some with just one parent, and all from different cultures and ethnicities. This simple, cheerful book is a lovely portrait of the variety and universality of family.

Family Diversity: This picture book features a terrific variety of families: single parents, mommy and daddy, mommy and mommy, daddy and daddy, and grandparent caregivers. Each reader will see her own family depicted.

Racial and Ethnic Diversity: The families in the book are also diverse in race and culture. This is a simple and nourishing portrait of how we are all different and yet also the same.

Sharing: The book is a gentle encouragement to be generous, appropriate for the youngest of readers.
