Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers: A Collection of Family Poems (Reading Rainbow Book)

fathers mothers sisters brothers by mary ann hoberman

What is a family? Who is a family? Either a lot or a few is a family; But whether there's ten or there's two in your family, All of your family plus you is a family!

There is something for everyone in this celebration of families - poems about families of all sizes and configurations, about brothers and sisters, adoptees and step siblings, parents and grandparents, even a special ode to the only child. Both poems and Hafner's warm expressive illustrations convey the sense of what makes family life at once so wonderful and so unpredictable. Told from a child's point of view, the poems are perfect for reading alone or in the classroom and for family story times as well.---from the publisher
