A Tale of Two Mommies by Vanita Oelschlager

This little book is a superbly illustrated one for kids, with lots of learning opportunities and lots of questions to answer. To me it seems it is about a two moms couple taking care of a little boy who clearly knows his moms’ duties, is aware of his expectations and knows he is loved and taken care of. It speaks tons about gender differences at a subtle level, through the pov of the little one who undestands his world pretty well. I warmly recommend it and considering purchasing it for my kids for when they grow up a bit more. Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this arc.

Are you a boy or are you a girl by Sarah Savage

This little book is a great tool for assisting parents and educators about gender equality and differences. It will certainly spark some great discussions among bigger children, I expect it is best for kindergarten age. The illustrations are a bit sketchy, though it could be due to my ARC copy. Nevertheless, the drawings are able to highlight and show the essence of the book.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

My name is Caillou by Christine l’Heureux

This little book is so adorable, the reader falls in love immediately with Caillou, through his stories and the cute illustrations.
The only suggestion, probably the wording should be more creative. I imagine that in French it sounds more natural.
I plan to check out the other Caillou books fo my son, preferably in hard copy. I am curious of they were published in more languages.
All in all, we loved this delightful book with my son. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
