Little Pup’s wolf family is on their way to a special reunion—with lots of cousins, games, roasting marshmallows, and fun! As the young wolf thinks about different kinds of families, it’s the perfect opportunity for Mama and Papa to teach their inquisitive child about the families that God brings together. Some families are big and others are small, some are led by grandparents or just one parent, and some families include adopted little ones– yet each family is truly special.
Even the members of Little Pup’s pack make up an important role in his family, although they sometimes pester him. Papa gently reminds his son…
“We need to love the family God gave us.”
Honestly, this book was not what I was expecting. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, and not in a good way. I kept wondering when a bombshell would be dropped and the author would begin promoting same-sex marriage or something of the sort. She never did, thank God but I wasn't quite sure where the book was headed when she started talking about different types of families. Families with eight children as opposed to a single child family home. Families with parents who are divorced and families where the children are raised by the grandparents. These types of families are all around us and we do need to have these conversations with our child, as we have in our home, but it just seems oddly presented in this children's book. Almost a bit pushy. If the message and the theme of "different types of families" would have been toned down a bit, it might be a more enjoyable read.
