Roof to roof, Federico the cat visits all his families everyday: Tadeo and his grandparents, Anna and her two Moms; Virginia, with her Mom and Dad, Paula and her two Dads… All of them different, all of them loved by Federico. Unconditionally.
This very sweet little tale is a warm-hearted introduction to diversity, empathy, and acceptance. Federico hides its core message in plain sight, matter-of-factly illustrating, without preaching or judgement, the universal, unconditional love the binds families of all shapes and sizes. A simple, subtle, delightful gem.

He visits families in his neighborhood, which consist of kids with various skin tones who live in families with two moms, a mom and a dad, single parents, two dads, and grandparents. Federico loves something about each family, and is loved in return. Bright colors and whimsical cartoon style art celebrate the rainbow of diversity. Such a joyful and appealing look at family for the youngest readers." [Youth Services Book Review]
