Families are complicated. Filled with crazy people, half-relations, interesting genetic traits, and traditions that date back centuries. Sometimes you're born into a family, sometimes your adopted in, and sometimes you have school friends instead of a family. "Would you Believe..." explores all of these relationships, and a few more.

Richly designed, with clear pictures, pleasing layout, and uncluttered, but still full, pages, "Would You Believe..." is a good introduction to familial relationships for students grade 3 and above. ( )
