Heather Has Two Mommies


Heather Has Two Mommies

Written by Leslea Newman

Illustrated by Laura Cornell

32 Pages

“Heather’s favourite number is two. She has two arms, two legs, two eyes, two ears, two hands, and two feet.” Most everything about Heather is like most other children around her, with one difference:  Heather has two mothers.

Heather Has Two Mommies first appeared 25 years ago in an attempt to bring alternative families and discussions about diversity into mainstream. Brave for its time, this newly published version offers new watercolour and gouache illustrations by well-known artist Cornell and slightly revised text. This book is a classic, respected for what it has offered readers for a quarter of a century.

We recommend this picture-book for children ages 3-7.
