Daddy, Papa, and Me; Mommy, Mama, and Me

Newman, Lesléa. Daddy, Papa, and Me. Illustrated by Carol Thompson. December 2008. Tricycle Press. 20 p. (9781582462622) Pre-Kindergarten.

Newman, Lesléa. Mommy, Mama, and Me. Illustrated by Carol Thompson.  December 2008. Tricycle Press. 20 p. (9781582462639) Pre-Kindergarten.

These two board books for young children were written by the author of Heather Has Two Mommies, Lesléa Newman. Both books are about same-sex parents and their child, and  feature ambiguously ethnic families doing typical family acitivities. The illustrations by Carol Thompson are excellent and the prose is bouncing good fun for all kinds of loving families to enjoy over and over again. Yay for our first children’s book of the new year! -Arla Jones
