Review

Praise for author Sara O’leary, illustrator Qin Leng and A Family Is a Family Is a Family:

USBBY's Outstanding International Books List

A Bank Street College of Education Best Children's Book of the Year


"The broad diversity of family constellations is refreshing . . . A-plus fabulous." — Kirkus, starred review

"Leng's drawings of domestic life are, like O'Leary's writing, winsome but never sentimental. Together they offer a straightforward, optimistic view of everyday modern life." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A sweet and tender tale that shows that families are composed of love regardless of how they may be configured." — School Library Journal, starred review

“[R]aucous and relatable.” — LitHub


Praise for Song for a Summer Night

“The poetry is a soft and lovely lullaby . . . The delicate illustrations, fashioned with ink and brush and digitally colored in pastel tones, evoke the beauty of the quiet night with perfect charm.” — School Library Journal

“The atmosphere Heidbreder suggests with letters, Leng amplifies with soft colors, dreamy images, and blended backgrounds. Go ahead: get ready to snuggle in and share this summer lullaby tonight.” — BookDragon

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the worst book I've ever seen. It actually stigmatizes family differences.
