At the end, we see how human families come together in similar ways to care for their little ones. Careful readers will be delighted to see that every animal mentioned in the book is hidden somewhere in the last image. The final spread offers interesting facts about the animals in the book, including the collective nouns for each. Jared Andrew Schorr’s bright, lively cut-paper illustrations and an unexpected freshness round out a very satisfying package.

We purchased for our entire family . We have a profoundly disabled child that has loving siblings. We wanted to show how sometimes they may not be atypical (who is!) or away in hospital etc but that’s ok as their family will always be there. This is shown in this book by very different animal families that we don’t see or read about everyday. Very special book for us ✨
