Young children can change your world forever. Over the years, families have taken many different forms. But one thing remains constant: adults are forever changed by the arrival of a child. The love and sense of wonder they feel for this small life deepen as each day passes. John Farrell and Maurie J. Manning offer rhythmical words and tender, playful paintings to show the emotional connections between grown-ups and their little ones.

There are three families in this terribly earnest picture book: a single dad with a blonde child, a blonde and Asian female pair with an Asian adopted child, and a black couple where the dad is dark, the mom café au lait and the child a color between.
