    As same-sex relationships gain more acceptance within our society, it is very encouraging that there are books such as this. This book explains how families with same-sex parents may look different from other families, but they function in the exact same ways. It also talks about bullying children of same-sex parents may experience and why it's wrong to bully.This book presents the issue with much more grace and finesse than some other, earlier books about gay parents.

    We've read this to our children and had to change every few words to correct the book. Statements such as "A woman who wants to be in a loving relationship with another woman is called gay" doesn't work for us two bisexual moms with asexual friends. We also couldn't get a grip on the intended public. The back blurb states: "This reassuring picture book introduces children to families that have parents of the same sex". Indeed, it switches to broad external statements "Gay and lesbians parents do [...]

    This book does an awesome job explaining same sex couples and it also does well illustrating the types of discrimination the children who are products of same sex families may endeavor.

  • Elizabeth Bartos

    This is book that discusses same sex marriages in an era when LGBT rights are at the heat of debate. What a fantastic way to teach about differences and acceptance. The author, Pat Thomas, presents this topic in a very simple, straight forward manner. It presents not only the family dynamics but also issues children may face if they come from a family of 2 Moms or 2 Dads. A great read for all kids and perfect for ages 4 and up.

    I enjoyed reading this book. I am a fan of Pat Thomas. This author has a serious of books on taboo or delicate subjects. Thomas does a beautiful job on introducing these topics in a classroom environment. This book is an excellent read aloud that touches on families with same sex parents.

  • Sarah

    I was looking for a same sex parent book for my 3 year old, however this one is a bit beyond her (maybe when she is a little older).


  • Michelle Gray

    Text is really well done. I think some of the illustrations are a bit stereotypical, but a good introduction to different family life for kids.
