How do families live together, and why are they sometimes apart? This profound and moving book will inspire reflection and conversation about what unites us and what makes us distinct individuals.

Colombian creator Dipacho explores the many ways we live with other people—or, at times, apart from them—with striking illustrations of the jabiru, the largest member of the stork family of birds. In spare, poetic text and stunning watercolors, Dipacho honors family togetherness as well as families whose members choose to live apart, or are separated by circumstances. Moving spreads pay tribute to family members who have died, and those just born. This ingeniously conceived book gives equal weight to the conventional and the unconventional arrangements in which we live, sparking conversations about what it means to be a family. The book ends with informational back matter about the fascinating jabiru stork, grounding it in the world of facts.

"(A) simple, straightforward, and soothing text about individuality. Dipacho has reassuringly encapsulated just about every experience a young reader may have. Soft pastel textures in a mostly primary palette provide a charming backdrop to project onto, with expressive jabirus of various sizes and dispositions."Kirkus Reviews

A good conversation starter for young kids to get them to thinking about how there are all kinds of different ways to navigate the world. It may be of great comfort for kids to see a family situation similar to their own presented on the page…. a nice addition to school and classroom libraries for pre-K and early elementary!” — L.
