About the book


Real Sisters Pretend


Megan Dowd Lambert


Tillbury House Publishers

Ages 4 – 7

Told with simple words and playful illustrations, this book touches on the topics of adoption, two moms, and multiracial family life.
This warm, engaging story, which unfolds entirely through the conversation of two adopted sisters, was inspired by the author’s own daughters, whom she overheard talking about how adoption made them “real sisters” even though they have different birth parents and do not look alike. Modern families can look very different from the nuclear families of yesteryear, but as Lambert says in the book’s introduction, “No matter how a family comes to be, the most important thing is for everyone to feel loved, safe, and cared for.”
