Description

This is the Spanish language softcover edition.

"A terrific book for unconventional families - single families, gay families, step families, families with adopted or foster children, and families of mixed race or ethnicity. It shows that family is made up of folks who love and care about each other. You don't have to look like each other or act the same way to be a family." - A Readable Feast

"...Muted ink-and-wash drawings of gray and brown makes this picture book look like an old classic...Chen's story of love, acceptance and self-discovery gives every sign of becoming a well-worn favorite." - Publishers Weekly

"Chen's vivid characters : the exuberantly befuddled ''crocoduck'' and his adopted family, the riotously creepy crocodiles that loom like shadows : are rendered with wit and warmth...Love overcomes all differences here, and Guji Guji's antics are laugh-out-loud adorable." - The New York Times Book Review

"This beautifully written story has much to say about appreciating families and differences, and it will resonate with children long after the final page is turned...a must-have for any collection." - School Library Journal (Starred Review)

"This sweet, encouraging story is a great read that both entertains and encourages readers. Inspiring and heartwarming, this story gently conveys positive messages about the importance of being who you are, standing up for what is right for you, caring about others, appreciating differences, not giving in to peer pressure or to other people's expectations of you, and listening to yourself—all through the metaphor of story. This book may appeal to families with adopted kids, to children from abusive families, and to anyone who feels different." - Cheryl Rainfield, Uplifting Picture Books That Don't Preach

"A sweet story about loyalty, bravery, and accepting the differences between us all." - Blue House on a Hill
