In Our Mothers' House

by Patricia Polacco

Two Moms.

Three Kids.

One neighbor who doesn't get it.

And a whole neighborhood that does.

Love is love.

Told from the point of view of the oldest child in the two mom family, every page is infused with love. The love her mothers' raised her and her siblings with, the love of family, and parents, of making gnocchi, and building a treehouse... the love of life.

So much love.

This book made me all teary eyed. I wish it had been read to me when I was a kid. I'm so happy that today, I get to read it to my child.

Enjoy it with someone you love.
