It’s also a simple task that the mommy or mama do for their child that children reading this book can relate to what their parents do for them.

Whether intended for the child of same-sex parents, who needs to see her reality reflected in the books around her, or for the child of heterosexual couples, who needs to see that families come in every shape and size, this (together with its companion, Daddy, Papa, and Me) would make a lovely gift! In artful mixtures of pastel-colored illustrations and rhythmic, playful voices, these books feature a day in a life of a lesbian and a gay couple. From hide-and-seek to dress-up, then bath time and a kiss goodnight, there's no limit to what a loving family can do together. It creates congruency which is needed in situations such as this one so the child can transition easily. Only in that book a slightly older toddler runs, plays, and eventually tuckers out an exhausted Daddy and Papa.

Rhythmic text and illustrations with universal appeal show a toddler spending the day with their mommies. Her literary awards include poetry fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. If you are concerned about the health and wellbeing of yourself or children in your care, you should always consult an appropriate healthcare professional. It is age appropriate for beginner readers and the activities the characters are doing will definitely gain interest and help children relate it to what they play with their family.

As one review put it, this book “shares the loving bond between same-sex parents and their children. I would emphasize are the great things the moms are doing and try to relate to things that their parents do for them.

The writing is pretty straightforward—no frills and complexities and ‘coming-out’ problems and all that jazz. You can almost feel the giddiness of Mommy on the merry-go-round or the whoosh of Mama and the child as they shoot down the slide. I think these would be great starting materials to teach any child that there are different types of families, that love comes in many different ways, and (I’ll reiterate) that what’s important in family is not the gender of a kid’s guardians but that all of the unit’s members love one another. It's a great world building book for a kid whether your kid has two mommies or you are a single parent or whatever else. Regardless of this, we are shown that they equally show love to her and make her as comfortable as possible.

It shows how parents do things with the boy separately but how some things they do together, such as bathing him. For a child reading this story, they may sing or recite this story because of the rhythmic structure, while thinking of family in a joyful way. Each page is a half bleed and just shows the mom and their child doing something with a white background to show that nothing else matters and it is all about the relationship between the mothers and child.

Through delightful rhymes and engaging pictures, the book provides a gentle and affirming introduction to different family structures for young readers. OCTOBER MOURNING: A SONG FOR MATTHEW SHEPARD was named an American Library Association 2013 Stonewall Honor Book, and A SWEET PASSOVER was named a 2013 Sydney Taylor Honor as well. They are presented separately on some pages, showing what they help the child with such as reading a story or bathing, but also show the mom's helping the child do things together.

The book gives children a new insight into lesbian families without using any biases or chapter oversimplification.

The overall theme is having two moms is normal and they do everyday things too like going on adventures, eating ice cream, etc.
