Review: A Tale of Two Mommies by Vanita Oelschlager


Goodreads Description:
 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.

Read this for Netgally after the title and the beautiful cover caught my attention and so I decided to go ahead and read it. 
Its a kids book so it is obviously extremely short xD
Probably took me longer to download it than it did to actually read it.
Its adorable and I really really love the drawings. They are super colorful and cute and I imagine them to be very appealing to children. I love the book itself as well. It gets to questions young kids with 2 gender parents would probably have when their friends have same sex parents and the childs response to how they are BOTH different and yet same when it comes to caring for him is just beautiful and true.

Recommend it?
For kids, of course! Even adults actually.
