Oh The Things Mommies Do!: What Could Be Better Than Having Two?

Summary: A playful celebration of Lesbian Mothers and their children! Oh The Things Mommies Do! is a bouncy, and playful look at the joys of a two Mom family. With its catchy rhymes and vibrant illustrations, it is a pleasure for children and parents alike!
Annotation: Written in rhyme, this sweet book is really a short poem for children who have two mothers. The illustrations show different two-mom families with both boys and girls, both only children and those with siblings, so that the book is written for children in all sorts of two-mom family units. With lines such as: Mommies make breakfast and tie up your shoes/They hold your hand on the first day of school/Mommies play baseball and go to the zoo/They build blanket castles in the living room, children will walk away from the book wondering what really could be better than having two moms. A reasonable purchase for a public library but not for a school library.
