A cute story about Heather, whose favorite number is two. She has two pets, two arms, two legs, two mommies, etc. It's a cute story about how Heather starts school and learns about all types of families with her classmates.

>When Heather goes to school for the first time, someone asks her about her daddy, but
>Heather doesn't have a daddy.

Did we just fail 5th grade biology? Heather does have a daddy out there somewhere and only one of her moms is the biological parent. Someone got mommy pregnant. Despite what science deniers want to say for their particular agenda, it still takes the chromosomes from male sperm and an female egg.

How about we tell Heather the truth about biology instead of becoming another science denier?

Later addition: The fact this is getting marked as 'offsensive' tells you exactly the levels science deniers will go to advance a purely political agenda instead of scientific fact.

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 It is so outdated and lame.
