Review: “A tale of two Daddies” off Netgally

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. I recieved this adorable e-arc from Netgally.

*Disclaimer, I recieved this ebook for free on Netgally in exchange for a honest review, these thoughts are 100% my own*

My thoughts on A tale of two daddies off Netgally

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
