Kirkus Reviews

As the title indicates, a smiling tot describes his role within a nurturing two-dad family. In rhyming text, "Daddy helps me paint the sky. / Papa helps me bake a pie," and so on till bedtime. Thompson provides warm, mixed-media illustrations of the happy trio against clean white backgrounds as they play and keep house together. Together with the corresponding Mommy, Mama, and Me (ISBN: 978-1-58246-263-9), it gives children with single-sex parents validation of their family structures in a healthy, positive way. Although it's not mentioned in the text, the illustrations in each one gently point to mixed-race households as well. Toddlers with two moms or two dads don't care about gender politics, they care about love, and this is what these two books give them. (12-36 mos.)
