Reading this and the companion My Two Dads and Me fosters something akin to the twinges of covetousness I feel when browsing celeb insta accounts or watching Glossier videos That said it's very cute and fun with its illustrations that look like fashion sketches It's also a badly needed board book that features young and modern same sex parents It's a bit wordy and confusingly a new set of parents appears on each spread though the narrative voice of a young child does not seem to change A young reader might wonder if this is one child with a dozen parents Yes Although I was kind of thrown off by the single narrative voice with changing families on each page Yay diversity but maybe don't make it all sound like one family in the words then? Or maybe they're just a family of shape shifters? One voice telling the story of them and their moms However via the images there are different moms and babies Straight forward story about all the things these babies do with their moms Or in other words the normal routine of any baby regardless of their family dynamic
