What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Review, School Library Journal, April 1, 2011:
"As in Newman’s Mommy, Momma and Me (Tricycle, 2009), this book broaches a controversial issue in an appealingly nonthreatening way."

Review, Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 2011:
"Centered on the child’s experience and refreshingly eschewing reference to controversy, the book emerges as a celebration of not only Mommy’s and Mama’s mutual love but progress toward equal marriage rights for same-sex couples."
