Received this book by mistake, shocked my wife’s she she opened the box lol. Returned it for the correct book. Not our lifestyle but would be good for homosexual families.
Great book to teach kids about how all families are different. My 2year old twin boys love this book.
A great story for kids to relate to, so great!!
"Daddy, Papa, and Me" tells a brief story about a child with two dads. I think it is a wonderful little book because it shows that two dads do the same things that a traditional family would do. Hopefully children will see that they are good parents instead of pointing out that they are homosexuals.
A lovely little book by Leslea Newman about a boy's fun day with both of his dads. Yes, his parents are gay but that fact is not what the story is about. Its not about how kids react to him having two dads, how he came to be born, what others say to him or how conflicted he feels about his parents. No, this book is not condescending or meant to make a big point about his dads like a few children's stories that I have read in the past. I feel that its meant to be a nice picture book telling a story that kids would enjoy being read to them. No big fuss about his dads, just the normal playtime between parents and child. And that is the book's charm.But lets not forget that this board book is written with great rhythm and rhyme that is just meant to be read allowed. For example " Papa and I both drum,drum,drum. Daddy and I both strum,strum, strum!" Then there are the gorgeous pictures, well drawn and could tell the story without the words. Great for a child that can't read and wants to know whats going on. This board-book is well worth the five stars I'm giving it.
