She has two arms, two legs, two pets--and two mommies. When Heather goes to school for the first time, someone asks her about her daddy, but Heather doesn't have a daddy. Then something interesting happens. When Heather and her classmates all draw pictures of their families, not one drawing is the same. This delightful edition for a new generation of young readers features fresh illustrations by Laura Cornell and an updated story by Lesléa Newman. Review Quotes It's hard to fathom now the scorn and fear this mild-mannered tale of a girl and her two moms occasioned when it was published in 1989. With attractive new art by Cornell, life in their 'little house with a big apple tree in the front yard' looks pretty idyllic, and the first day of school is fun, too...--The New York Times "Heather has two mommies--and a new look! Newman's picture book about Heather and her mommies first appeared 25 years ago as the product of desktop publishing and a determination to create a story reflecting family diversity. This updated version includes new illustrations by the commercially successful Cornell, which supply humor and avoid lesbian stereotypes that dogged earlier versions. . . . Welcome back to Heather and her mommies."--Kirkus Reviews The author's text is simple yet powerful in its ability to move readers of all ages. Cornell's fluid watercolor and gouache illustrations breathe life into this delightful story. Each page is artfully and distinctly rendered to be a visual depiction of the beauty and joy of diversity.... Readers will be warmed by this glimpse into Heather's family, whether revisiting the text or experiencing it for the first time.--School Library Journal The details are different, but the nontraditional-ness is held in common.--The Horn Book Though a quarter of a century has passed, the book holds up well. With new illustrations and a slightly revised text, it remains a charming, sweet-spirited story that still fills a need...Newman and her new illustrator Cornell deserve kudos for bringing fresh life to this standard title.--Booklist Online Now a modern classic, the children's book "Heather Has Two Mommies" is the perfect Mother's Day book, times two.--Los Angeles Times About The Author Lesléa Newman is the author of more than sixty books for children and adults, including October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard. A former poet laureate of Northampton, Massachusetts, she lives in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

That Neighbor Kid - by Daniel Miyares (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 32Genre: Juvenile FictionSub-Genre: Social ThemesFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young ReadersAge Range: 4-8 YearsBook theme: FriendshipAuthor: Daniel MiyaresLanguage: English About the Book In this nearly wordless picture book, a young girl spies on her new neighbor, a young boy who's building something from planks of the fence between their backyards. Book Synopsis Acclaimed author/illustrator Daniel Miyares returns to the sweet, nostalgic tone of his beloved illustrated book, Float, in this gorgeous, spare picture book about making a new friend. There's a new boy in the neighborhood, and he's up to something very curious. His next door neighbor, a girl his age with two long braids, peeps around corners and watches as he scavenges wood from the fence between their houses, drags around a hammer and a bucket of nails, and reads a book about living in trees. When she finally works up the courage to say "hi," she finds herself invited to help build the private getaway every child has dreamed of: a tree house. She also finds herself with a new best friend. Calling back to his critically-acclaimed work Float, Daniel Miyares wordlessly creates a beautiful story of friendship through his meaningful and warm illustrations that awaken imaginations of young readers.

Delightful for its illustrations and simple story with a profound message, this is a thoughtful, adventurous story for young readers."--School Library Connection "August/September 2017"
