I hope you guys are well.
At the library you can always find me searching through the new titles in the children’s section. I love picking books that are going to teach and show my children something different. I want them to know and understand different topics including families that aren’t your typical mom and dad. I don’t shy away from books that deal with topics that are deemed controversial. For me, if it’s age appropriate and tackles the topic in a respectable and loving manner, then I’m checking the book out and reading it with my children.
The “My Family” picture books by Claudia Harrington was a great find at the library. I was quickly drawn to them and super excited. I didn’t think twice about putting them in the check out pile. I was able to find 3 titles out of the 6 in the series.

Here’s a brief synopsis of these titles above: Lenny is the class reporter in these books and he follows his classmates home for a school project. He learns about Elsie and her life with her two moms, Connor and his life with his dad and military mom, and Jasmine and her life with her two dads.
These are the other three book titles in the series.
Honestly, what I loved the most about these books is the innocence that is conveyed through the character’s story of who does what within their families respectively. Each character’s way of life is what they’re accustomed to and they can’t wait to share it with their friend. I loved that!
I highly recommend these books. You should check them out at your local library and if they don’t have it, request it!
Take good care all!
Until next time…
