I have reached, time and again, for a book that my only child could relate to. I have purchased several books about the only child only to find that they reinforced the stereotypes of the only child. I wanted a book that was positive! That spoke of the love of the family of three and the beauty of families no matter what the size. This prompted me to write “We're Three: A Story About Families and the Only Child.” It is a sweet, rhyming story that is beautifully illustrated by Christina Simcic. It is an interactive book that allows the child to draw on the blank pages to personalize the book for his or her own special family. It is a keepsake for your child and the beginning of a pictorial journal for them to behold. I’m sure you will enjoy it.

FIVE STAR REVIEWS!
"There are all kinds of families in this great big world. Some are big with lots of kids… and some are small, with not too many or simply none at all." Did you know that the single-child family is the fastest growing type of American family? Yet, when author Vivian Cameron-Gallo, the mother of an "only child," sought a children's book that represented her daughter Ava, she found only a few and those had a melancholy tone with negative stereotypes. Therefore, inspired by her own family of three, she wrote this endearing little book to make the single child feel "normal" and part of something bigger – a family. The gentle, flowing verse makes for easy reading, and the colorful drawings by Christina Simcic add visual beauty to the text. I think that We're Three is a very beneficial and useful book, and it has my hearty endorsement.
