Makayla is visiting friends in her neighborhood. She sees how each family is different. This book discusses different types of families and how not all families look the same. Some have kids, some don't, some are divorced and have step-parents and step-siblings, some children are adopted and don't look like their parents, some have 2 dads, some are bi-racial, some are loud, some are quiet. How is her own family like the others? What makes each one great? This diverse cast allows readers to compare and contrast families in multiple ways. No matter what type of family you have there is something special about yours.
