Description

Mommy, Mama, and Me is a really cute book that shows that even though a child has two moms doesn’t mean their life is different from a family with one mom and one dad. So, I think this a great book for children who are beginning to read and to get them familiar with the concept of same-sex parents with out them even realizing it. It shows how parents do things with the boy separately but how some things they do together, such as bathing him. It shows that it doesn't matter whether the parents are two women, two men, or anything in between because they show the child love and acceptance, and that's all that matters.

I feel like this will give kids the chance to realize that can still find similarities in their family in comparison to a friend who might have two dads or two moms. Mommy, Mama, and Me" is a heartwarming and beautifully illustrated children's book that lovingly portrays a same-sex family. If they are exposed to the ideas early, it will limit confusion and judgement in the future because it will already be "normal" to them.I wasn't sure what to classify this book as under our current genres so I classified it as realistic fiction because it discusses family units that exist. This gorgeous board book is beautifully illustrated by Ciara Ni Dhuinn, and every page could be put in a frame and hung on a nursery wall.

Overall, I found the book engaging and the way the two mothers is presented in a way that warms my heart as a reader which I believe would be the experience of younger readers. It is perfect for introducing young children to the diversity of families, whether they see it as a window or a mirror. These books are wonderful additions to any board book collection but they are particularly valuable to a community that is greatly under-represented in children's literature. As a result, sometimes board books are simplified adaptations of already existing picture books, and sometimes they are written with the intention of beginning and ending their lives as board books (though if you're Sandra Boynton, sometimes you'll see the rare board book to picture book crossover). Also, I could use body movements for children to have a better connection with the story and pictures.

In this book she has managed to walk that fine line between being realistic and being stereotypical. This book Mommy, Mama and Me by Lesléa Newman was published in 2009 and is a picture book that shows the same gender parents raising their child. LESLEA NEWMAN is the author of over fifty books, including Heather Has Two Mommies, the first children's book to portray lesbian families in a positive way. With the colorful illustrations by artist Carol Thompson the day to day life of these non-traditional families is depicted in a realistic way.

Not so long ago, we heard about Peter Parnell’s controversial children’s book And Tango Makes Three, a true story about a pair of male Penguins in Central Park Zoo raising a chick.

In terms of the art, I've seen Carol Thompson's illustrations for books like Frieda Wishinsky's Oonga Boonga and Toby Forward's What Did You Do Today before.
