Me and My Family Tree

by Joan Sweeney
Illustrated by Annette Cable


For children who are naturally curious about the people who care for them (most make inquiries into family relationships at an early age), Sweeney explains, with the assistance of a young narrator, the concept of a family tree. Photographs become understandable once the young girl learns the relationships among family members; she wonders what her own family tree will look like when she marries and has children. A larger message comes at the end of this story: not only does she have a family tree, but so does everyone in the world. Cable's drawings clearly define the process of creating a family tree; she provides a blank tree so children can start on their own genealogy. (Picture book. 5-7) --  Kirkus Associates, LP.
