Book Review: A Tale of Two Mommies


I want to thank NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity and all views and opinions expressed are my own.

A Tale of Two Mommies is a beach conversation among three children. One boy asks another boy about having two mommies. A young girl listening in asks some questions too.

True to a child’s curiosity, practical questions follow. “Which mom is there when you want to go fishing? / Which mom helps out when Kitty goes missing?” To which he answers: “Mommy helps when I want to go fishing. / Both Mommies help when Kitty goes missing.”

A Tale of Two Mommies is intended for 4-8 year olds.

This book lets us look inside one non-traditional family, a same sex couple and their son. As the children talk, it’s clear this boy lives in a nurturing environment where the biggest issues are the everyday challenges of growing up.

I give this book 5 out of 5 Friggin’ Cute Stars! Omgosh! This book was so cute! As some may know, I am part of an LGBT+ family so my children have 2 mommies and this was the perfect read for kids to better understand being part of a diverse family! I couldn’t sleep yet again, so I saw this cute little gem was on NetGalley as a “Read Now”. I read it excitedly and just fell in LOVE! The illustrations went great with the adorable little story and I can’t wait to read this book to my children tomorrow! The way the little boy main character explains his momma and mommy is so adorable! My almost 2 year old calls me “mommy” and my baby momma Andrea “momma” even though she likes to call me “the vagina mom”😂 so I could just relate to this cute little story and it was so freakin’ adorable. I recommend this book to diverse or open-minded families.

I hope everyone has a lovely holiday weekend!💖📚🎄⛄💯

  1. With the conventional family unit slowly becoming a thing of the past, books like these are essential to give a grounding to kids finding themselves in what are still regarded to be ‘different’ family set-ups. One day, they will pass unnoticed, and that will only be a good thing.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  2. I completely agree with Pete (he always has such great comments). I also think it’s amazing that there are more and more books like these that are being published. I just wish that the world itself would become a bit more accepting as well. We still deal with some very narrowminded people unfortunately, that just seem to try and force their despicable views on others. Luckily these people are not the norm, and that’s a good thing as well. Even though I am sad to read that you could not find sleep you have written a very beautiful review, as usual 😘😘 Wonderful read Dani 😘😘😊😊
