Originally self-published in 1989, Heather Has Two Mommies was the first lesbian-themed children's book ever published. The simple and straightforward story of a little girl named Heather and her two lesbian mothers was created by Newman and illustrator Diana Souza because children's books that reflected non-traditional families did not exist. Its enduring message about tolerance and acceptance will appeal to readers of all ages and backgrounds.

Did we just fail 5th grade biology? Heather does have a daddy out there somewhere. Someone got mommy pregnant. Despite what science deniers want to say for their particular agenda, it still takes the chromosomes from a sperm and an egg.

another sign the apocalypse is upon us, people. A children's book that condones aberrant sexual behavior among adults, that often has lasting adverse psychological effects on their children. The author should be locked up. No, the publishers should. Whenever I see two dykes in public with a kid I say aloud, "Heather has two mommies" in a mocking way, hoping one of them will say something to me.

Normalizing of a variety of families. Written without a sense of otherness. Sweet and lovely.

I read this book out of curiosity to se how a children's book introduces the topic of family diversity. This book does an excellent job of showing how families are different and that love is the most important thing in a family. I would recommend this to anyone with young children.

A great way to help bring up the topic of LGBT relationships to children.

This book had it's usefulness at one point, but please - find a different one now. It is so outdated and lame.
