Books: A Tale of Two Mommies and A Tale of Two Daddies

   

What I really like about these two books,almost more than introducing kids to the fact that there can be two daddies or two mommies, is the defiance of parenting gender roles. 

It seems to me that gay marriages (or couples) would be inherently egalitarian – at least much more so than traditional heterosexual marriages. And this is definitely a step in the right direction. 

The art is cute and the rhymes are fun. The authors have done a great job in helping us to understand that even if you have 2 mommies or 2 daddies, you have 2 people that love you and take care of you. 

We need to stop being a world that hates or demonizes people for whatever reason. Steps toward that always take the form of understanding and that’s what these books do so well. 

Thanks to NetGalley and VanitaBooks for copies in return for an honest review.
