In this book Molly draws a family picture for her kindergarten open house. "First she drew Mommy. Then she drew Mama Lu.” Definitely not a book for the Children area of libraries. (How long until the censors find this post and remove it?)

My daughter loved this book when she was little.

A gentle yet straight-forward handling of same-sex parenting and the questions kids may have about it. I thought the teacher character handled Molly's feelings beautifully: when Molly says that the other kids say a real family can't have two moms, the teacher replies that it obviously can, because Molly's family does. That's perfect!
