{A Tale of Two Mommies: Vanita Oelschlager}

{Synopsis} – A 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.

{My thoughts} – This is a really nice take on how a lesbian relationship with children works. I don’t believe that a family has to be a mom and a dad. I am a very open minded person when it comes to the fact that individuals cannot help who they fall in love with. This book helps to show that both Mommies have their roles in the relationship as well as they share some of them in order to maintain a united front. This book is also written in a rhyme type scheme, however it is also a question and answer book. The little boys friends are asking him questions and he is answering them and telling them who does what within his house.

Final Conclusion: 4 Star Rating.
