Arnold Adoff’s groundbreaking picture book about an interracial (African American/white) family has been completely reillustrated in a larger format by Emily Arnold McCully, the book’s original illustrator. Although Adoff’s love poem to his multiracial family has continued to resonate since its first publication in1973, McCully’s original illustrations had dated, so this new edition is especially welcome. (Ages 3-7)
