Animal portraits illustrate the many ways that families can be formed. There is incredible humor in the illustrations - great and sometimes goofy facial expressions and often very funny content. For example "some children are adopted" is the caption below a picture of two sheep holding two wolf cubs. "Some children have many pets" - a hippo family surrounded by a dozen birds - while on the next page: "and some just have a plant" shows two grinning tigers, their cub and a cactus. While my story time audience laughed at the silliness, the message, "if you love each other, then you are a family" came through loud and clear when we got to the last page and there was a communal "ahhhh" as I closed the book!
