Families come in all shapes and sizes. In this family, a little child has two mothers, and together the two women do a wonderful job loving and caring for their toddler. Mommy combs the toddler's, hair and Mama rocks her little one in a chair. In the park, Mommy takes the child on the roundabout, and then Mama and the child slide down the slide.

With warm illustrations and a simple and engaging rhyming text, this board book shows readers that the ties of love are what bring people together to form a happy family unit.
