A curly-haired toddler—passable as either a boy or girl—celebrates “mommy” and “mama,” and the activities and tender moments they share. During a playground trip, “Mommy and I go round and round,” on a playground wheel that resembles a giant birthday cake; on the opposite page, “Mama and I slide to the ground.” The bright colors (a green claw-foot tub has froglike feet) and pleasing verse offer a simple lesson about love that same-sex parents should embrace. Newman (Heather Has Two Mommies) and Thompson's (Molly and Her Dad) Daddy, Papa, and Me is also available. Ages 1–3. (May)
