A quiet, rhythmic story written in a respectful tone, “I Promise” gently broaches various questions a child may have about families. The story’s theme is that a family is a family, no matter its size, colour, or the genders of its members. With an open and curious tone, this timely resource may invite conversations and reflections about diverse families, also offering students from nontraditional families an opportunity to see themselves reflected in the story. Suitable for a primary audience, the book is appropriate as a class read-aloud and may supplement units about identity and family, encouraging students to reflect, discuss, and engage in writing activities.
