Counter Today's children experience many different types of families in their own as well as in their friends' lives. This exuberant collection includes more than 150 poems from some of today's best poets to reflect the enormous diversity of modern family life. Poems about individual family members are deftly interwoven with themes of belonging and togetherness, family feuds, shared memories, play, loss, and love. Holly Swain's delightful illustrations add sparkle and charm throughout. Bubbling with attitude and affection, this is a true celebration of families everywhere and a perfect collection to share.
