  • All Kinds Of Families15:27 All Kinds Of Families by Mary Ann Hoberman

    Hoberman has tackled the elusive question of what makes a family a family in this sometimes silly, sometimes serious book of rhymes. She likens families to numerous items that share a relationship and are inherently the same. Her refrain says it all, "Bottle caps, gingersnaps, buttons, or rings/You can make families from all sorts of things!" Other families include tools, balloons, thimbles, and marbles, but the verses make it clear that human families are much more than a conglomeration of like, easily categorized, things; they share a human history and the promise of many more families to come. No matter what, making a family is about seeing the likenesses, not the differences.

    The horribly horrible monster king summoned his four equally horrible chefs. "I am tired of eating only eyeballs and ketchup," roared the king. "Find me something new to eat or you will find yourselves on my menu!"

    Trembling with fear, they each set off in a different direction to look for something truly scrumptious. But what besides eyeballs and ketchup, could a monster king possibly want to eat? A rabbit? A fish? A snake? What a monster chef finally brings back may change dinnertime in the kingdom forever.
