A Tale of Two Daddies by Vanita Oelschlager, Kristin Blackwood & Mike Blanc Review




A Tale of Two Daddies is a playground conversation between two children. The boy says he heard that the girl has two dads. The girl says that is right–she has Daddy and Poppa. True to a child’s curiosity, practical questions follow: “Which dad helps when your team needs a coach? / Which dad cooks you eggs and toast?” To which she answers: “Daddy is my soccer coach. / Poppa cooks me eggs and toast.”

Intended for 4- to 8-year-olds, this book introduces a type of family increasingly visible in modern society. Neither favoring nor condemning, it reflects a child’s practical and innocent look at the adults who nurture and love her. It becomes clear that the family bond is unburdened by any cultural discomforts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an adorable look at the always inquisitive and learning mind of a child. One is asking another all about who does what for her because she has two fathers. She answers all the questions in a straightforward way, just like young kids do. This book is a great way to show a family is a family no matter the actual makeup of the members. I recommend it to any child who has questions. Whom I kidding, kids are walking question marks so it’s for all of them.
