"This sweet and interesting early reader board book echoes of the famed Shakespeare's query. What is in a name? Whether geese are found in gaggles or dolphins in pods, a family by any other name is still as warm and loving! From A to Z, children will learn the many ways family is called to be. (Ages 2-5)"
