Playful and sweet, Real Sisters Pretend celebrates the wonderful variety of modern families, in which the only essential ingredient is love.

Reviews

“Where was REAL SISTERS PRETEND when I was growing up as an adoptee? A must have picture book, especially in today's world of varying family structures.” — Chris Soentpiet, illustrator of JIN WOO, AMAZING FACES, MY BROTHER MARTIN, and other books for young readers

“Joy. Love. Connectedness. These are all such hugely important things to hold onto right now in the midst of difficult times. It's paramount that we keep on emphasising to kids how loved they are, that family is family no matter what form it takes, that what matters is that we choose each other, always. "Real Sisters Pretend" (2016) by Megan Dowd Lambert, illustrated by Nicole Tadgell, explores that idea of chosen family so beautifully. It's a playful, joyful story of adoptive sisters, discussing their connection to each other and the misunderstandings of those outside their family. While it is clearly written specifically to the topic of adoption, the dialogue is true to life and highly entertaining. And I love the matter-of-fact choice of the author to make this a two-mom family. Because family is family, and that's the whole point of the story.” — Noodlenuts Children's Books
