Not since the Three Bears has there been a children's story about the family of three or the only child. This book captures the spirit and love of the family of three and invites other family numbers to participate. The book is interactive and asks children to draw pictures representing their own family unit. This makes the book more than just a story book but a pictorial journal of the child's personal family experience.



Inspired by her own family of three, Vivian Cameron-Gallo sets out to take the "only child" out of the isolation that generalizes and labels the only child. The single child does not stand alone but stands as an important part of a larger unit, a family. This interactive story is about families and the things they do together. The author hopes that the reader will follow along and draw pictures about their family on the blank pages designed for this purpose. The illustrations by Christina Simcic have captured the love of many different families. This book is made from the heart for all the young hearts beating to become our future. "We're Three" let's you know that your place in the world is special!

There are so many families in this great big world...

Professional Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Stories for Children Magazine 5 Star Review
February 9, 2009
By V. S. Grenier "Stories for Children Magazine ... (Ivins, Utah USA)
REVIEWED BY: Wayne Walker

"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. In addition, the story is interactive, asking children to draw various pictures which represent their own family unit. Thus, it is more than just a story book. It becomes a pictorial journal of the child's own personal family experience. "Only children" are reminded that they do not stand alone, and their families are encouraged to do things together. I think that We're Three is a very beneficial and useful book, and it has my hearty endorsement.


The Only Child Option by Alicia
We’re Three is a darling book by Vivian Cameron-Gallo about the joys of being in a small family – Mom, Dad and one little “bit.” Not only is it a cute story with beautiful illustrations, but it has three pages that invite the child to draw their house, things they do with their family, and a picture of their family. My son drew his pictures and now we have a fantastic family keepsake.
