This a great book for children. The illustrations are fabulous and what great way to teach your children to be nice to their pets. I read it to my little girl almost everyday and she loves the character Emma. Though we are not from a "two mom" family, I feel the book is a great way to let your child learn about the many differnet types of families in the world through a great story about a little girl and her cat.

This book is about a little girl and her cat and their daily lives. The fact that she has two moms is handled in a matter of fact nature, saying we too, are a normal family. It is about love, understanding and parenting. Great way to introduce your children to family enviroments that they will experience as they grow up and their circle of friends expand, bringing them into other people's homes. Parents can learn from this book too.

I bought this book after finding a recommendation for it in a list on amazon.com.
It's a bit 'young' for my two five year olds (It would be perfect for the 2-5 year old, my two are more in the 5-7 range), but the girls really enjoy it anyway. The pictures are quite charming - and I think that my girls get a kick out of Emma having two Moms, like they do. And they think Mesha is cute. They're really lobbying hard for a kitten, and that's another reason I got this book. As sort of primer on proper cat treatment. It works for that too.
My babysitter was reading it to the girls the other day, and she omitted to read 'A Two Mom Story' while reading the title. One of the girls called her on it. You can't leave that part out, you see.
Parent of twin girls in a Mommy & Ma family.

I love this book because it's very appealing visually. It really hooks kids with it's rhyming story and thier natural sympathy for the little girl who can't seem to stay out of trouble with her pudgy cat. The story and theme are very developmentally appropriate for young children and early readers. I like that the little girl happens to have two moms. The subtle family diversity piece broadens children's view of families without any preachiness at all. A really terrific book!

This is a sweet, charming story of a little girl learning to treat her cat. The illustrations are bright and entertaining, yet reflect the simplicity of the text for young readers.

This was by far one of the best LGBT-inclusive picture books I found, and I've had the recent opportunity to look at quite a few. Most of these books seem to focus on the two moms or two dads as a central part of the story, and this is fine to a degree. But where are the books for kids who want to read about children in families like their own, that don't make a big deal of the same-sex parents? Here (finally) is a book that tells an entertaining story about a girl named Emma, who just so happens to have two moms.

as a two-mom family with a toddler who is just starting to "get" the idea that she has two moms, we went looking for books to support her experience. many of the ones out there are fairly predictable and don't have much to offer outside of being a story about gay families. THIS book however, is PERFECT for any toddler, because it really is more about childhood than anything else. while my daughter was very interesed in the two moms part, and kept identifying 'mama' and 'mommy', she was mostly interested in what emma was doing to poor meesha and seemed to really identify with her character. after two reads, my daughter already had most of the moms' lines memorized, yelling at the book, "NO! DON'T DO THAT!" the final message is icing on the cake.

immediately an "again, mama, again" books. i'm getting it for all of our friends, gay and straight.

Our 3-year-old daughter's eyes grew wide as saucers when she saw that Emma had two moms. This is the first book we've found that doesn't focus on the two mom-ness of the story; it focuses on Emma and her cat. I wish there were more like this.

Wonderful family book. It does not focus on the parents, just the little girl, who like our daughter, probably hears "no" too often. We purchased when our daughter was 4, she is now 5 and probably enjoys the book even more. She knows what each mom is going to say on each page (very similar to us), and she loves the illustrations. Finally, a sweet story with a beautiful, normal family. After reading, she can't keep her hands off our cat, who doesn't know what to do with all the extra affection.
