All Kinds of Families (40th Anniversary Edition)

In a book far ahead of its time, All Kinds of Families celebrated the broad diversity of American families when it was first published in 1976. Now Norma Simon and Sarah S. Brannen have updated this classic for the modern age. Multicultural and multigenerational people demonstrate what being in a family means and how all families offer each other support and love.

  • Simon’s revised text strives toward inclusiveness in describing diverse family constellations, and Brannen’s soft-engaging illustrations augment its efforts.
