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?"I really enjoyed this book. It is perfect for kids to read alone or with a parent. I am planning on buying this one for my kids soon. It is catchy without being annoying. The little girl gives a no nonsense tutorial to her friends about how her family works. It would help other children understand that families can be different and still the same. I loved that this book felt free to blur the lines of traditional gender roles as well. Any child would benefit from reading this book.
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.
I give A Tale of Two Daddies 4 Fairies for a lovely children's book that can help children with confusion on how families work. You can click here to find it on Goodreads and here to find it on Amazon.
