Every Family Is Different
Even Animal Families!
by Constance O'Connor and Natalia Rojas

Have you ever felt like your family is different than other families? Lots of people feel this way. But you only have to look to the animal kingdom to realize that families come in all shapes and sizes. Some families are large, with lots of siblings. Some are small, with just a single parent and one child. Some have two mommies or two daddies, and some have parents who adopt children to call their own. But they all have one thing in common: Love. Every Family is Different will introduce you to nature’s families, in all their wonderful diversity, and show you that they are all natural and perfect, each in their own way. Just like yours!

A scientist who has studied animal behaviour extensively, CONSTANCE O’CONNOR is fascinated by the complexity of animal families, and enjoys communicating with children about the diversity in nature. Constance lives in Thunder Bay, Canada, with her husband and kids. NATALIA ROJAS is an early childhood educator with a keen interest in teaching children about the value of different family structures in a simple, positive, and inclusive way. She currently lives in Liverpool, England. LUCY POLEY is an artist and scientist with a lifelong love of nature and wildlife. She enjoys exploring ways of combining art and science to communicate information, such as painting illustrations for books! Lucy lives in Calgary, Canada. Constance, Natalia, and Lucy have created this book in the hopes of making our human societies more inclusive, engaging young children, and helping them to see their own unique family situations reflected in the natural world around them.
