A Tale of Two Mommies is about a little boy who has two Mommies – Momma and Mommy. He meets up with a couple of other kids at the beach who ask him all sorts of questions about which of his mommies does things for him. The boy answers with either Momma, Mommy, Neither Or Both! Everything is in rhyme so it has a bit of a sing-song feel to it and is super adorable.
I think this is a great book to teach other kids about families that have two mommies – they’re no different than any other family – they still are there for you when you have a bad dream or skin your knee and give you 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 Mommies is a beach conversation among three children. One boy asks another boy about having two mommies. A young girl listening in asks some questions too.
True to a child’s curiosity, practical questions follow. “Which mom is there when you want to go fishing? / Which mom helps out when Kitty goes missing?” To which he answers: “Mommy helps when I want to go fishing. / Both Mommies help when Kitty goes missing.”
A Tale of Two Mommies is intended for 4-8 year olds.
This book lets us look inside one non-traditional family, a same sex couple and their son. As the children talk, it’s clear this boy lives in a nurturing environment where the biggest issues are the everyday challenges of growing up.
