You’re reading this here on Babble, so we already know you belong to the new generation of parents. And with that comes a new generation of families and children. While families that consist of a mother, a father, and a child will always, always exist, our generation of parents — and children — comprise all sorts of families. And our children are most certainly growing up in world very different than the one in which we were raised (Doesn’t that make us sound like such adults?).
Our kids will go to school and become friends with other kids from more types of families than any other time in history. And books can be a great way to introduce your children to the myriad of diverse families that make up our new generation of parents.
After the jump, check out the Top 20 Family Diversity Books Every Home Should Have, and celebrate the differences that make every family — and child — special.
