|Heather Has Two Mommies |
Illustrated by Laura Cornell
Candlewick Press 2015
Heather's favorite number is two. She has two arms, two legs, two hands, two feet, two pets, and two mommies! When a child at her new school asks her about her daddy, Heather's teacher has all the children draw pictures of their families and learns "the most important thing about a family is that all the people in it love each other." A brand new edition, with updated lively illustrations carries the same message of celebration of diversity.

Why I wrote this book
Many years ago, a woman stopped me on the street and said, "I don't have a book to read to my daughter that shows a family like ours. Someone should write one." So I did! I hope Heather Has Two Mommies shows that there are many types of families in the world, and the most important thing about any family is that it is filled with love.
