It is a good book to read to the children when they learn about the family tree. The author, Rachel Isadora wanted the readers to know that in this story that everyone in this family have a certain trait from each of their family member. ( )

This would be a great story to use while talking about genealogy and family trees. A cute story that shows that we are all alike in some way. Loved the sense of family and unity throughout! ( )

What a family is a great book to read when you want to learn about family trees. The them in this story was that everyone looks a like no matter how they are relative some how. It was a bit confusing, but it is a great story. The pictures of the family was nice. I would read this to a little bit older group. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399242546, Hardcover)

Did you ever wonder where you got your freckles, or your weird toes, or that astounding ability to wiggle your ears? Do you know the difference between a second cousin and a first cousin once removed?

Families are a real puzzle, especially a family as big as Ollie’s. But with Grandpa Max’s help, Ollie navigates his family tree and sees the many things all these different people have in common as well as the things they don’t!

A book as useful as it is entertaining with fabulous portraits by a Caldecott Honor artist. And as an added bonus, Ollie’s family tree is included on the endpapers.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:02:37 -0400)

Grandpa Max explains to Ollie the ways their relatives are connected.
