With an emphasis on the sanctity of family reunions in Black American families, Family Reunion is a sweet story about opening yourself up to new experiences—and finding unexpected delights. A young boy would rather stay home and play video games than attend his family reunion, but somewhere between the cooking competitions and dance-offs, he discovers joy that only family can bring. Sketch-like illustrations emphasize the diversity of American families, while the matching red shirts signify connections that persist above all.
