Daddy, Papa, and Me by Leslea Newman

Cover for Daddy, Papa, and MeParenthood through a child’s eyes can’t get any simpler than the way it is presented in this book  Daddies are the people who take care of you, play with you and fix things for you. If you have a child under the age of five who you want to see that having two  daddies is just regular life, this book should be a part of your home library. It is a board books so if your child younger than three-years-old gets attached in a way that they play roughly with the books, the texts are durable.  One father is white and the other father is Asian and the child is white. Because these are books that simply carry the reader through a fun day in the life, there is no discussion of adoption or biology. A few months ago when my daughter was still two, we read Mommy, Mama, and Me  by the same author and my daughter kept trying to figure out which mother was the mommy. However, when we read Daddy, Papa, and Me last night, my daughter, now three-years-old, only had questions about what the father was doing on the page where he is fixing a stuffed animal while a mug of coffee sits on the table beside him. She wanted to know why he was drinking coffee and why he needed scissors. This is a “must have” book, which is easily accessible and enjoyable for kids of all ages.

Recommendation: Highly Recommended; Age 0-5
