Love Makes a Family


At it’s very core we see all the ways that a parent and child’s relationship is grounded in the day to day. We see all the ways families support each other. The illustrations are stunning. Each colorful page tells a familiar story of parenthood. We especially love the inclusive illustrations of the families themselves – including families of moms, dads, solo parents, and adopted children. 


This book contains themes of LGBTQ+ families, families of many races, adopted children, and solo parents.



This fun, inclusive board book celebrates the one thing that makes every family a family . . . and that’s LOVE.

Love is baking a special cake. Love is lending a helping hand. Love is reading one more book. In this exuberant board book, many different families are shown in happy activity, from an early-morning wake-up to a kiss before bed. Whether a child has two moms, two dads, one parent, or one of each, this simple, beautiful story demonstrates that what’s most important in each family’s life is the love the family members share.


The board book, Love Makes a Family, was written and illustrated by Sophie Beer.
