My Kind of Family Book Review
What People Are Saying...
"The My Kind of Family interactive children's book series is a must have addition to every school counselor's toolbox of activities for personal and social development. For young children, family plays a significant role in their sense of self and belonging. At school this sense of self impacts how they relate to their teacher and classmates. A student whose family looks different than that of their classmates may struggle to feel accepted. Guidance counselor's can promote peer acceptance of diverse family structures by raising awareness that encourages understanding. In the My Kind of Family Series, children bring the storybook's characters to life as they draw and color details that are special to their own family. The story's personal development theme becomes a meaningful tool for growth. When used in the classroom the activity becomes a fun and engaging learning tool to help students recognize and embrace family diversity."

"Author Shannon D. Rhodes offers a refreshing approach of inclusion and kindness. I read this book with my 7 year old who really grasped how the story’s message is to gather everyone together, despite their differences, and find a kind way to engage and interact without any stigmas and for the good of the community. This is a must-have book for parents! I highly recommend it!"
