Families is a 32-page picture published by Inhabit Media about a grade two student who attends school in his home community of Iqaluit. The simple book explains a variety of families living in the town from single parent home, a home with a mother, father and child,  a girl with two mothers, a boy with two fathers, a girl living with her grandmother, and a boy with two families—a father in Iqaluit and a mother in Ottawa. The student begins to realize that no matter your own kind of family if there is caring and love that is what counts. The illustrations demonstrate a contemporary school and families in Iqaliut. These images portray today's Inuit people to readers in the southern regions of Canada. Families is valuable resource for schools learning about today's families introducing ideas about birth parents, intergenerational families, and two-spirit parents in a non-judgemental manner to primary level readers. The authors have introduced Inuit names and terms for parents into the story and a glossary is provided. Reading Level: Fountas and Pinnell Level M.  Recommended.
