A Tale of Two Mommies

by Vanita Oelschlager, illustrated by Mike Blanc - £8.95  Vanita Books (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780982636671 | ISBN 10: 0982636679

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.
