About the Book

Chocolate brown pup Sutton Button tries her best to look like her smaller, golden yellow siblings, but she soon realizes that love, rather than how you look, is what makes you family.

Book Synopsis

A heartening picture book about a young pup who looks different from her siblings and ultimately learns that love, rather than how you look, is what makes a family.

Sutton Button has always looked different from her family. While her siblings had short, stout legs, Sutton's legs were long like noodles. And while her siblings had scruffy, yellow fur, Sutton was a tricolor puppy with soft fur.

But when others don't believe that Sutton and her siblings are actually related, Sutton starts to wonder if she really belongs in her family at all--until she realizes that her and her family are the same in all the most important ways and that love, rather than what you look like, is what makes a family.

With heartwarming text and adorable illustrations, A Family Looks Like Love is a story about the enduring power of love and teaches readers that family comes in all shapes and sizes.

"Sutton Button" is adorable, and so is this book! Such a clever story for ALL families. Families can LOOK different a number of ways, so not only is it great for discussions about multi-racial families, but also for blended families or families with members who have physical disabilities. Wells does an amazing job writing this light-hearted dog-lover book that just happens to navigate readers through the heavier topic of looking different. Excellent read with fun and relatable co-characters.

A Family Looks Like Love should be gifted to everyone. This story is cute with an important message that even if you don’t feel like you belong, you do! You are loved and worthy just like everyone else around you! Sutton is the main character in this book and while she may not look like her siblings, all their love is the same! It comes from their strong family! I can’t wait to get my physical copy and to add it to our nighttime reading routine! I received an ebook copy for early review.
