We Are Family
Title: We Are Family
Author: Patricia Hegarty
Illustrator: Ryan Wheatcroft
Publisher: Tiger Tales, First published in Great Britain by Caterpillar Books
Publication year: 2017
Brief Summary: From Tiger Tales-“All families are different – and yet in many ways the same! This book uses a gentle rhyming text to follow eight different families, celebrating their everyday differences as well as the similarities they share.”
Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I think this might could be used in a public library but I am not sure that it would fulfill any sort of curriculum.
Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I did like the illustrations in this book because I thought they were rendered in such a colorful way, and showing all the families at once, that while the reader is reading it, children can look through each panel at the families.
