One of the first children’s books to present a picture of same-sex families when it was released in 1989, this 2015 re-print features fresh illustrations and an updated story. The charming tale follows Heather, a young girl whose favorite number is two. She has two arms, two legs, and two pets. And she also has two mommies. When Heather goes to school for the first time, someone asks her about her daddy, but Heather doesn’t have a daddy. Then something interesting happens. When Heather and her classmates all draw pictures of their families, not one drawing is the same. It doesn’t matter who makes up a family, the teacher says, because "the most important thing about a family is that all the people in it love one another." Available on Amazon.
