To which she answers: "Daddy is my soccer coach. / Poppa cooks me eggs and toast." It becomes clear that the family bond is unburdened by any cultural discomforts.
If you are starting a blended family, or know someone who is, Vanita Oelschlager’s new children’s book, A Tale of Two Daddies, is the perfect book for you.
A Tale of Two Daddies, is told through the eyes of two children: A boy who is fascinated that his friend has two daddies, and a girl who is proud to spell out all the things her “daddies” do for her.
The girl calls her two daddies “Poppa” and “Daddy,” and tells her friend, in exquisite detail, how the two are different, and how they are alike: “Poppa’s the one when I need braids.” “Daddy is there when I’m afraid.”
Thus proceeds a delightful tale of love, trust and family pride. Illustrator Mike Blanc tops the story off with bright, colorful drawings reminiscent of early childhood at its finest.
