My Family Tree and Me by Dušan Petričić -- ADVISABLE

Petričić, Dušan My Family Tree and Me. PICTURE BOOK. Kids Can Press, 2015. $16.95. Content: G.

From the front to the middle, this book explores one boy's family tree on his father's side. Then, reading backwards from the end to the middle, kids can explore the boy's mother's side. The very middle shows an extended family tree with illustrations of those on both sides of the boy's family, along with their relationships to each other.

The diversity shown in the book reflects that of many families, and the unusual format adds extra interest to the read. Would work especially well for classes or families who study genealogy or for young children or ASL students who may have difficulty visualizing how cousins and great-great-grandparents and nieces and everyone else in a family is related.
