As this little family moves through the world, the girl notes some of the ways that her parents are different from each other, and how she is different from both of them. With each difference she lists, she highlights the ways that their individual characteristics join together to make her family. The fact that her mother is African American and her father is white is just one of the many interesting things that make this little girl and her family “just right.”
This simple story celebrates how the differences between one mother and father blend to make the perfect combination in their daughter! Author Marguerite Davol goes beyond physical likenesses to ponder the activities and interests that she shares with her mother or father (and ones that are entirely her own.) With cheerful illustrations of the family, kids will be eager to spot the similarities and difference in this little girl's family — and be inspired to look for them in their own.
