A beautifully illustrated book for children about the various social structures across the animal kingdom.

In the animal kingdom, just like the human one, families come in all shapes and sizes. Meet some very different animal families and discover who does what.


Throughout the pages of this beautifully illustrated book, you’ll begin to see animals in a whole new light. Discover who’s the boss, who takes care of the children, and who’s in charge of getting dinner. Meet a different animal family on every page, learn about what it’s like to live in the group, how they communicate with one another, and the names for the group, males, females, and young.


From elephants and chimpanzees to wolves and bison—is there an animal family like your human family? And if you were an animal, which family would you choose?
