My Military Mom

(4) K-3 My Family series. Illustrated by Zoe Persico. In each book, second grader Lenny interviews a "Student of the Week" at home, highlighting what's special about the classmate's family. The cheery if formulaic stories differ in the particulars (and occasionally reinforce stereotypes), but underscore what all families ideally have in common: everyone's parents/guardians love them best. The cartoony pictures of diverse groups (oddly featuring lots of winking) match the upbeat tone. Review covers these My Family titles: My Grandparents, My Military Mom, My Mom and Dad, My Two Dads, My Two Homes, and My Two Moms.
