My 2-year-old LOVES this book. He has asked me to read "Families book" multiple times every night since we received. it. He loves to "awooo" when we get to the noisy family page and laughs out loud at the clean and messy pigs. Ours is a single-parent family. I wanted to start introducing the idea of diverse family structures in a way that would be understandable and reassuring to a toddler. This book worked perfectly.
For those folks who are complaining that it includes two-mom and two-dad families, please deal with your bigotry. Regardless of whatever archaic views you hold on marriage equality, children in those families are entitled to dignity and a sense of self-worth that comes from pride in one's family. That's the ultimate message of this book.
