From the creators of Me on the Map and Me and My Place in Space, here is a fun, easy introduction to genealogy for young children. As in her previous books, Sweeney demystifies an abstract concept by presenting it from a child's point of view.  In Me and My Family Tree, a young girl uses simple language, her own childlike drawings, and diagrams to explain how the members of her family are related to each other and to her.  Cable's clear, colorful, detailed artwork helps make the parts of a family--from siblings to grandparents to cousins--understandable to very young readers.  Kids can makes sense of their own family connections by filling in the blank family tree provided at the end of the book.
