Love is all you need. That’s what young Lenny discovers as he follows his classmate, Adam, home for the day after school for a student of the week report project. Lenny learns what makes Adam’s family unique, such as having a dad who works from home, a mom who teaches high school, and a family love for gymnastics that leads to gymnastics equipment right in the back yard! At the end of the story, it is revealed that Adam and his younger sister were adopted. However, Lenny discovers that what isn’t unique about Adam and his family is how much they love each other, the same love that Lenny and his own mom have in their own family.
