A Tale of Two Mommies. Vanita Oelschlager, Mike Blanc, ill. 2013. 40 pages. Vanita Books. [ARC provided courtesy of NetGalley.]

A Tale of Two Mommies is a look at a little boy who answers his friends questions about his “non-traditional” family structure. It’s a cute look at same-sex headed households from the view of children. The questions and responses are innocent and I found them useful when talking to my own child.

The book is bright and colorful with engaging art. It’s also a companion piece to A Tale of Two Daddies. I love that these are companions because it allows kids from both family types to see themselves represented in literature.

I highly recommend this book, especially if you have children who may not be from same-sex headed households. I used it as a way to broach the subject and educate my kindergartner about how families look different but function in the same ways.
