From family reunions to sibling rivalries to beloved family pets, the stories in this collection highlight the importance of family, along with the daily challenges and conflicts that families often face. Books in the collection illustrate the many different sizes and shapes that families may take; their diverse cultural heritages and family values; the roles, responsibilities, and routines that families maintain; and their part in the larger community.
