Freeda The Frog and The Two Mommas Next Door by Nadine Haruni is a children’s picture book that brings to light the importance of sharing all different kinds of family dynamics. A new tadpole by the name of Jessica is introduced to the school and invites her new friends and schoolmates over to her home to meet her Mommas. The narrative is youthful and filled with lovely laughable puns, while also relating the message that two parents of the same sex is simply a different family arrangement. The illustrations by Tina Modugno are colorful and make for a lively and entertaining bond between the words and the artwork on the pages.
Freeda The Frog and The Two Mommas Next Door by Nadine Haruni really grabbed my attention. Having family members myself who are in same-sex relationships, I think it’s very vital that children get the opportunity to read stories about same-sex family dynamics so that they are educated at an early age to be aware of all the different types of families that make up the world that we live in. Children come up with what feels like millions of questions in a day, so any type of story that could answer one of those questions is definitely a story that needs to be shared. Freeda The Frog and The Two Mommas Next Door would be a great addition to any shelf in your home or at your child' school library so that others may enjoy it for years to come.
