Summary: Have you ever wondered what would make a child blissfully happy? Children are our joy, but what is it that makes them happy? It's no secret that kids are happy in loving families and with good parents, but how do you define a good parent? As slender or chubby? Tall or short? Do they prefer cooking or football, or maybe fixing things? Does any of it matter, if they love their children, take care of them, teach them, encourage them, and make them feel like they're so happy they could fly? These are some of the questions that this book for children raises and answers at the same time, with the tale of Becker McBeth, a happy little girl. She loves to laugh and play, and she does it every day, just as she does her chores, proud to be big enough to dress herself, make breakfast, and help around the house. She can't wait to become big enough to walk her dog Biser all on her own, too, but until then, she's perfectly happy to walk him with the help of her loving parents - her two dads. And she wouldn't change her family for anything in the world.
"I'm a Girl with Two Dads, and I Love It That Way" is a wonderful book about a blissfully happy child loved by her parents, a girl who wants all the kids in the world to be free to dream, to have as loving families as she does, and to understand that the best family in the world is the one that loves you, no matter what they look like on the outside.
