Love Makes A Family

This book gives me joy. It normalizes all types of families by sharing common things that families do that represent love like playing, reading, helping, and comforting. It shows dads caring for kids, mixed-race families, and families with two moms and two dads. It does this with vivid pictures, but without drawing attention to them with words. Making all of these things look, as they should be, completely normal.
