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.This book is as wonderful as it's companion, A Tale of Two Daddies. It is a no nonsense explanation of how a little boy's family works. He easily clears up his friends' confusion at his having two moms. It is catchy, clear and concise for young readers. I also appreciated that the little boy, his mothers and his friends were multicultural. It really makes this book a must have for any family's book shelf. Kids need examples of diversity in their reading choices. All around, this is a great book for young readers.
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.
