Me and the Family Tree
Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrations by Ashleigh Corrin


A celebration of family roots from award-winning children's author Carole Boston Weatherford!

I've got my brother's ears

And my sister's big bright eyes.

I've got my grandpa's hands

Though mine are a smaller size.

As a young girl reflects on the characteristics she shares with members of her family, she also notices and appreciates what makes her unique. This sweet and inclusive board book is the perfect way for kids to reflect on the love and security of family and to celebrate the many wonderful features and qualities that make us each special!
