GOOD STUFF: 1. This is a story about a little girl with two moms, where its no big deal. Most books turn same-sex parents into a problem that needs to be explained. Plus the story includes a two-mom family, a two-dad family, and a hetero family. 2. Racially inclusive. The little African-American girl has a light mom and a dark mom. The other kids and adults in the story are both black and white. (We are a white family, but my daughters go to a daycare with kids of lots of different races/nationalities/ethnicities, and I want my girls to see integration as normal and positive).
BAD STUFF: 1. Illustrations are terrible from an art-quality standpoint. As a former art historian, I may be a bit sensitive to this issue, but with all the fabulous children's book illustrators out there (many of whom are gay or socially progressive straight people), I don't understand why the authors chose an illustrator whose style most closely resembles Beavis & Butt-head! 2. Poor writing. The story is un-innovative and overly simplistic. Plus, at the end, the moms reward Keesha for being nice by giving her extra dessert, which I disagree with from a parenting perspective.
Despite my objections to the book. I am glad that I bought it, because my little girl is craving stories that normalize families like her own. Have such a story available makes her feel positive about her two-mom family.
