In Our Mothers’ House


In Our Mothers’ House

Written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco

48 pages

Marmee, Meema, and their three children are just like most families:  they cook, they play games, they laugh, they learn, and they celebrate the seasons of the year together. Most people in the neighbourhood love them—and how could you not – they were always happy and having fun! Sadly, some families don’t like them and work hard to stay away from them. They had two moms and three adopted children—now what kind of family is that?

In typical Patricia Polacco style, this book is written with deep love and endless joy. It celebrates diversity and highlights the fact that family is wherever love is.

We recommend this picture book for children, ages 6-8.
