Jessica has two moms! These little tadpoles are colourful, cute and curious. – Kinzie Things

My thoughts bit: 

This book is about a tadpole named Jessica who has two moms. Most of the other tadpoles have a mom and a dad and it comes up in conversation when the tadpoles all get together. Jessica is great at explaining her family makeup to her friends – she even busts out an underwater chalkboard!

The conversation continues once Jessica’s friends get home. There’s some really great discussion in this little story about diversity and what it means. The theme is enhanced by the adorable drawings and the bright and colorful images throughout the book!

I haven’t read the first books in this series…but this one would be a great addition to any library!
