The Wallaby family sets the stage for acceptance. When we accept our family members just the way they are we leave room in our hearts to love them fully. In her first book, Nicholas, That’s Ridiculous, the Wallaby family realizes that all the antics the young boy in their family plays out are just part of being a boy. This theme continues with Jilli, That’s Silly, as she does silly, little things that most girls do. Next up is the family dog, Eddie, That’s Spaghetti. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the continued additions of family members being true to themselves in this fun-loving series.
