My Family Is Different by Jessica Marie Baumgartner is an informative as well as educational book for kids that tells them how each family is different. The book shows how the little girl learns about her family and also about the families of her friends, and realizes that all are different and they follow different religions. The book very subtly teaches children tolerance of all religions and races. Since it is written from a child's point of view, the book will capture the attention of young readers and help them identify with the little girl in the story.
The book is wonderful. The illustrations are colorful and vibrant and they breathe life into the story, characters and scenes. It is a meaningful story, well written in a manner that children are taught about the different types of people that live in society. It is a story of tolerance and acceptance put forth in a good way and with great clarity that makes it easy for kids to comprehend.
Books like these are perfect to teach children new concepts, thoughts and ideas. This book will make a good bedtime story book for parents and grandparents. I will also recommend this book to all school libraries as it makes a good topic for read aloud sessions in classrooms. Every child will have something to learn from this little girl and her friends. And it will help them understand that their family is not the same as their friends' families.
