TEXT SET

This book is inclusive of both race and homosexual diversity, tapping into two possibly points of discussion. The storyis told from an African American childs point of view on how his family was created when his two Caucasian fathers adopted him. It also includes the many women who are involved in their lives as well. The content is presented in a very upbeat and happy way but also is to the point when discussing the issue at hand.

“How my Family came to be: Daddy, Papa, and Me” is a book about an African American boy who was adopted and discusses his thoughts on being raised by two Caucasian fathers. This books uses humor and playful illustrations to get the readers engaged. I also like that it was told from the child’s point of view.

I thought the story was cute and it fills a need, but I didn't like the cartoonish illustrations.
