Description

 

See below for English description.

Une enseignante demande aux élèves de sa classe de réfléchir à ce qui rend leur famille spéciale. L'un d'entre eux croit que sa famille est trop différente des autres pour pouvoir l'expliquer.

En écoutant ses camarades décrire des familles de tous les types et de toutes les tailles, il réalise que sa famille, bien qu'atypique, n'en est pas moins une famille.

Tant l'adoption que les familles reconstituées, l'homoparentalité, le divorce et les familles traditionnelles sont abordés dans cet album écrit par l'auteure Sara O'Leary, lauréate de plusieurs prix. Un regard chaleureux et captivant sur différents types de familles, souligné tout en douceur par les illustrations exquises de Qin Leng.

 

When a teacher asks the children in her class to think about what makes their families special, the answers are all different in many ways — but the same in the one way that matters most of all.

One child is worried that her family is just too different to explain, but listens as her classmates talk about what makes their families special. As they describe who they live with and who loves them — family of every shape, size and every kind of relation — the child realizes that as long as her family is full of caring people, it is special.

A warm and whimsical look at many types of families, written by award-winning author Sara O'Leary, with quirky and sweet illustrations by Qin Leng.

Original title: A Family Is a Family Is a Family

Editorial Review

 

« La vaste diversité des constellations familiales est rafraîchissante... J'accorde un A plus à ce livre. » ~ Kirkus Reviews

« Les illustrations de la vie quotidienne réalisées par Qin Leng, sont, tout comme l'écriture de Sara O'Leary, charmantes sans être sentimentales. Combinées, elles présentent une vision directe et optimiste de la vie quotidienne moderne. » ~ Publishers Weekly
