I really love reading this book with my daughter.
Anna L. Bosworth
Small children like to see children like themselves in books just as parents like to see their family situations reflected in the literature their kids read.
E. R. Bird
Kids will love the rhyming story and cute drawings of the child and daddies doing fun activities.

Format: Board book
What is the purpose of your average everyday board book? It's not really a crazy question. In the history of printed literature, board books are relative newcomers. I mean, books for babies and toddlers? A radical notion! Yet parents who start reading to their kids early find that their children are better readers later on down the road. As a result, sometimes board books are simplified adaptations of already existing picture books, and sometimes they are written with the intention of beginning and ending their lives as board books (though if you're Sandra Boynton, sometimes you'll see the rare board book to picture book crossover). Topics cover everything from animal sounds to colors, peek-a-boo, letters, numbers, and families. Always with the families. Small children like to see children like themselves in books just as parents like to see their family situations reflected in the literature their kids read. The problem is that there really isn't a lot to pick and choose from if you're a modern gay or lesbian couple. On the picture book side of things you can sometimes find a sweet story in the midst of all the pabulum ("Mini Mia and her Darling Uncle" perhaps), but it's relatively rare. And on the board book side of things? Essentially you can either find translated/bilingual editions of Moreno Velo and Termenón Delgado's charming "Manu" series, but that's almost entirely it. Now Tricycle Press is taking a chance and producing some quality baby board book fare for the busy single sex family. What is the purpose of your average everyday board book? To teach children about the world, of course.Read more ›

Last December I was searching for papa-centric gifts to get our son's other Dad (who goes by "Papa") for Christmas, and let me tell you, it was slim pickings. This is unfortunate as a lot of two dad families go by the "daddy/papa" monikers. In addition to the papa stuff being few and far between, lots of it was for grandfathers. And while we may not be spring chickens, we ain't visiting Grandpa Land anytime soon. However, I did manage to find a few fun things, including a charming book about animal babies and their fathers called "Papa Papa", as well as this sassy "Who's Your Papa?" Papa Smurf tee shirt.

But the best by far was the book "Daddy, Papa, and Me" which has since become one of our favorite books to read to our son. It's a very straightforward, no-nonsense, non-preachy, day-in-the-life story of a child (cleverly illustrated so as not to be gender-specific) and his/her two fathers. It starts off with the child asking "Who wants to play with me today?," followed with spread after spread depicting things Daddy and Papa does with the realistically energetic toddler. Our favorite is the one with Daddy helping to "paint the sky" and Papa helping to bake a pie. (I'm Daddy, and an artist/graphic designer, and Papa is Italian, and a cook among cooks).

After a slew of other activities (throwing a ball, having a tea party, etc.) the book ends with a sentiment any parent of a toddler can relate to, regardless of the family's makeup. "Does anybody need a rest?" Daddy and Papa say "Yes, Yes, Yes!"

What appeals most to me about the book is that it doesn't try to make a case for this family, or celebrate that it's "different." There are plenty of other books for that. What it does celebrate is the joy of a child spending time with his parents -- learning, playing, and experiencing life.

Format: Board book
Author Leslea Newman, and the world, have come a long way since her book, Heather Has Two Mommies, came out, and that's a relief.

Not only is Daddy, Papa, and Me the single board book of its kind to date, it's really fine -- attractive, enjoyable, thoughtful and perfect for all young children to enjoy, whatever their own families' makeup.

A happy, busy toddler and two parents, daddy and papa, relish an affectionate, child-centered day together.

Neatly rhyming simple text accompanies friendly colorful illustrations depicting such homemade fun as pretending with costume props, flying paper airplanes, vrooming a toy car while piggyback riding, painting, baking a big pie (with wonderful child created pie dough decorations on top ), strumming a guitar, drumming on a toy drum and a cooking pot, mending a stuffed toy, throwing a ball, making tea and enjoying a tea party together.

The parents spell each other, taking turns with some of the activities, but finally do appear to appreciate the pretend rest their little one arranges for them.

Reading this is satisfying and makes a person feel good.

We gave this as a gift to two dads who had twins and they wrote to is saying that they love it. We got another one by the same author on Two moms and our son loves it.

My daughter likes this one. I suspect my son will love it when he is old enough to appreciate being read to. He's only 15 months right now and is more interested in squirming and climbing all over daddy
