Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review, Mothering Magazine:
Mommy, Mama, and Me depicts the gentle, nurturing relationship of a lesbian couple and their little one. In this sweet board book, the flowing lines and warm palette of Carol Thompson’s mixed media illustrations work in concert with Lesléa Newman’s rhythmic text. Also, see this book’s gay-fathers counterpart, Daddy, Papa, and Me, by the same creators.
Publishers Weekly

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)

PreS—These board books show same-sex parents engaged in daily activities with their children. In Daddy, the men play with their toddler—dress-up, paper-airplane flying, strumming and drumming instruments, and having a tea party. Mommy and Mama spend the day at the park—going down the slide, riding the merry-go-round, playing hide-and-seek. The soft, realistic illustrations expand the simple texts.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

    Highly recommend for Lesbian mothers!

    This is a great book. Our 3 year old son loves reading a book that has a "mommy" and a "mamma" like he does. It is very simple & easy for him to understand and he can "read" it on his own by the pictures. It is not at all preachy nor does it try to be too PC like some gay oriented books out there. There are unfortunatly only about 5 books on the market for a toddler/pre-school aged child about having two mothers. This one simply shows that kids that have 2 moms are the same as any other family. This is definatly in our top 2!

    Highly Recommended

    This is an excellent book for babies and toddlers! We are a family of two mommies and a daughter. I feel that this book is a very good depiction (for a small child) of life with two mothers. The illustrations are colorful and hold the attention of my ten month old. It is not too wordy and the rhythm and rhyme of the text flows very nicely.

    nice model

    Newman has written a simple, yet important book for children about a family with two female parents. Our daughter relates to the tasks presented, the activities included and the love the parents give to their child. What a nice example!

    Cute, well written story

    One of the better books for gay families looking for a book that reflects their lives. The fact the family has two moms is incidental to the story which is about a family spending time together and having fun.
