"Heather's favorite number is two. She has two arms, two legs, and two pets. And she also has two mommies. When Heather goes to school for the first time, someone asks her about her daddy, but Heather doesn't have a daddy. Then something interesting happens. When Heather and her classmates all draw pictures of their families, not one drawing is the same. It doesn't matter who makes up a family, the teacher says, because "the most important thing about a family is that all the people in it love one another"--Provided by publisher.

another sign the apocalypse is upon us, people. A children's book that condones aberrant sexual behavior among adults, that often has lasting adverse psychological effects on their children. The author should be locked up. No, the publishers should. Whenever I see two dykes in public with a kid I say aloud, "Heather has two mommies" in a mocking way, hoping one of them will say something to me.

Normalizing of a variety of families. Written without a sense of otherness. Sweet and lovely.

I read this book out of curiosity to se how a children's book introduces the topic of family diversity. This book does an excellent job of showing how families are different and that love is the most important thing in a family. I would recommend this to anyone with young children.

A great way to help bring up the topic of LGBT relationships to children.

This book had it's usefulness at one point, but please - find a different one now. It is so outdated and lame.
