“Mommy, Mama and Me,” and “Daddy, Papa and Me” by Leslea Newman

Tricycle Press, 2009

ISBNS: 9781582462639 and 9781582462622

Written by the well-known author of  “Heather has Two Mommies,” these two titles are the first board books to focus specifically on same-sex parents. Illustrated by Carol Thompson, they depict loving families in warm, inviting colors, with the brief story about a day in each family told in easy rhyme.

These books will be welcomed by the thousands of same-sex parents looking for books reflective of their families, but all children will enjoy the familiar stories of a day spent with loving parents.

The books have won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Best Book Award.

  1. We really loved these books — and delighted that are part of a larger trend to show all types of families.
