We All Live Together by Terri Kelley speaks to children about the families of today compared to olden days when grandparents, aunts and uncles came in once in a while to take care of the grandchildren, nieces and nephews. In this story, the author speaks about a little girl who moves in with her siblings to her grandparents. Her parents are in jail and the children have to stay with their grandparents. In school, the teacher gives them a project to do a family tree and the girl finds it embarrassing to talk about her family. But her attitude changes when she gets to know about the family life of others.
It is a beautiful story of family and relationships which children find confusing and complicated when they are young. The girl realizes that there are many other kids who are facing bad times like her. The pictures capture the essence of the story. They are bright and lively and they add movement to the story. Children's books should be colorful to attract kids to pick them up. The best way to teach them something is through stories.
I love all the children's story books by this author. She always has some subtle messages for young readers and her presentation, themes, and and illustrations make the books very attractive. This book will make a good story for read-aloud sessions in classrooms and libraries. Parents can also use it as a bedtime story book.
