It’s February 10, time for 10 for 10!
Here are 10 nonfiction picture books about all kinds of families–perfect for storytime or your classroom unit on families. Enjoy!
Todd Parr’s book just ooze love and acceptance. (I didn’t put Matthew Cordell’s Wish on this list since I assume it’s categorized as fiction, but it’s a gorgeous, wonderful adoption-themed picture book–don’t miss it!)
One doesn’t mean solo. See how many one family can include.
Silly and fun!
More Parr goodness.
A great model for sharing our family stories.
This one’s a little older, but Sandra Markle’s dramatic story of a mother emperor penquin’s quest is fabulous (with beautiful art by Alan Marks).
Inspired by true events after the 2004 tsunami, this one reminds us that finding family is always possible, even after loss.
This is my new one! It’s rhyming (with prose sidebars) and comes out March 1, and explores different family structures in the animal/human world.
Also rhyming, this one is lighthearted and fun!
Why stick to only families of living things? This rhyming picture book shares families of all kinds, even inanimate objects. Our younger daughter, Maddie, spent years creating families of everything: butter dishes, blocks, pens, you name it. She would love this.
