The lyrics to a children's song from John McCutcheon's album Family Garden provide the upbeat text for this picture book. The expressive paintings suggest a folk art style and show the family as a white mother and father who adopt an Asian child. Other family structures that appear in the book include an African-American single father and a white lesbian couple. (Ages 3-6)
