Mommy, Mama, and Me

Leslea Newman, Author, Carol Thompson, Illustrator , illus. by Carol Thompson. Tricycle $7.99 (20p) ISBN 978-1-58246-263-9

A curly-haired toddler—passable as either a boy or girl—celebrates “mommy” and “mama,” and the activities and tender moments they share. During a playground trip, “Mommy and I go round and round,” on a playground wheel that resembles a giant birthday cake; on the opposite page, “Mama and I slide to the ground.” The bright colors (a green claw-foot tub has froglike feet) and pleasing verse offer a simple lesson about love that same-sex parents should embrace. Newman (Heather Has Two Mommies ) and Thompson's (Molly and Her Dad ) Daddy, Papa, and Me is also available. Ages 1–3. (May)
