{Synopsis} – A Tale of Two Daddies is a playground conversation between two children. The boy says he heard that the girl has two dads. The girl says that is right. She has Daddy and Poppa. True to a child's curiosity, practical questions follow. “Which dad helps when your team needs a coach? / Which dad cooks you eggs and toast?”

To which she answers: “Daddy is my soccer coach. / Poppa cooks me eggs and toast.” It becomes clear that the family bond is unburdened by any cultural discomforts.

{My thoughts} – This book is quite similar to the book she had written called {a tale of two mommies} and it is just as good. I enjoyed this book. It helps children to understand that it is alright to have a different family dynamic. It’s alright that most children don’t have a mommy and a daddy. Some children have two mommies and two daddies. I am one of those people that don’t have an issue with other individuals and their life choices as long as they don’t affect my life and my children. When I say this, I don’t mean it in a bad way. People cannot help who they fall in love with and children cannot help who their parents are.

This book helps to show another side of what a real family can be like. As long as a child has a parent that will happily help them do whatever needs to be done to help the child grow, learn and become all that they can be. That it is possible for any child to become more then they are and that the parents that raise them with the values that are instilled in them are the only values that matter. This is a well written book and I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to share it with my children.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
