A Tale of Two Daddies is a super adorable book about a girl who has 2 Daddies – Poppa and Daddy. She is with a boy in the park who has all sorts of questions – which one would build your house in a tree? And which dad helps you when you skin your knee? And the girl answers each one with Poppa, Daddy, Neither or Both! The book is all in rhyme which makes it even more fun.
I think this is a great book to teach other kids about families that have two daddies – they’re no different than any other family – they still make birthday cakes and give lots of love!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
A Tale of Two Daddies is a playground conversation between two children. The boy says he heard that the girl has two dads. The girl says that is right. She has Daddy and Poppa. True to a child’s curiosity, practical questions follow. “Which dad helps when your team needs a coach? / Which dad cooks you eggs and toast?”
To which she answers: “Daddy is my soccer coach. / Poppa cooks me eggs and toast.” It becomes clear that the family bond is unburdened by any cultural discomforts.
