This book is written mainly for children aged 3 to 7. It is primarily intended to read aloud by either parent in a two-parent family, or by a single parent. It has also been written and designed with the beginning reader in mind.
The book focuses on the family and how it grows, because young children are intensely curious about their relationship to it. The illustrations show a wide variety of family situations to stimulate a child's awareness and acceptance of differences in lifestyles and cultures. This sharing of values and ides will help parent and child communicate better with each other.
The book does not try to give all the answers about sex and the family to every child, nor does it presume to make choices or determine attitudes for parent or child. It is intended to be an open, comfortable book that provides a simple framework of important information without prejudicing individual growth.
