When a teacher asks the children in her class to think about what makes their families special, the answers are all different in many ways -- but the same in the one way that matters most of all.

One child is worried that her family is just too different to explain, but listens as her classmates talk about what makes their families special. One is raised by a grandmother, and another has two dads. One has many stepsiblings, and another has a new baby in the family.

As her classmates describe who they live with and who loves them -- family of every shape, size and every kind of relation -- the child realizes that as long as her family is full of caring people, it is special.

A warm and whimsical look at many types of families, written by award-winning author Sara O'Leary, with quirky and sweet illustrations by Qin Leng.

Beautifully illustrated to match lovely words about how family can mean a variety of things--from having two moms or being raised by grandma; from foster parents to dual-custody; from tons of kids to being the only child. Every situation is normal because everyone is loved.

"My mom says that before I was born I grew in her heart."

In this warmhearted story, each student shares what makes their family special. A charming portrait of the many types of families of our diverse society.

Sara O'Leary and Qin Leng are an incredible picture book duo.
