A Tale of two Daddies by Vanita Oelschlager
Hello book friends and welcome to my blog! If you are new here then thanks for visiting, I hope you find something you enjoy. If you’re a repeat I’d like to say welcome to my web ;-). I hope you find something interesting in my little space on the internet.
*Disclaimer, I recieved this book for free on Netgally in exchange for a honest review, these thoughts are 100% my own*
I was really looking for a quick read so I decided to see what Netgally had available. Childrens literature is NOT my usual “go to”, but I wanted to see what type of books they were making for kids these days. I was looking for something fresh (not anything like Caillou).
I wanted something about STEM, or non traditional families. That’s when I came across ” A tale of two Daddies” by Vanita Oelschlager.
The book is a conversation between two kids, a boy and a girl. The girl has two daddies. The boy (like any other child) is just asking her random questions about which daddies she goes to for which scenario.
When the book started I thought it was going to be one of those typical “this dad is the mom” sort of thing but I was wrong. Each scenario is fit with a Dad, and some scenarios don’t have a Dad answer, for some it’s both.
I thought it was a great non judgmental way for kids to talk about same sex couples. The female main character never got offended and just answered his questions.
It was a nice change of pace (this book came out in 2010). The illustrations were fantastic! Simple yet beautiful.
Who is this book great for?
I believe this book would be great for childcare centers or at home if you have little ones around. Or maybe you’re like me and just want a quick, breath of fresh air read.
My rating for this book is 4.5 stars
Till next time book friends!
