All around I thought that it was an okay book, but nothing special in my eyes. It reminded me of the book that I had read earlier called Daddy, Papa and Me which was written by Newman.

A playful book that shows two mom families doing every-day tasks with their kids. Has catchy rhymes about all the wonderful things mommies can do and how amazing it is to have more than one, it also presents multicultural families in a realistic and loving way. Good stepping stone to discuss social issues with kids, as well as diverse family structures.

Reading levels not available, but I think it would be appropriate for K-2.
