REVIEW: Mom Marries Mum by Ken Setterington and Alice Priestley

The Official Description: A brother and sister are thrilled that their mom and mum are getting married! After dancing around the living room, they are full of questions. Will Nana and Pop be there? Will they get to dress up? The answer is yes! They celebrate the wedding outdoors with family and friends. And most importantly, they all get to blow bubbles! A beautiful celebration of a loving family celebrating an important day together.

Just the facts: Two Moms getting married, simple and charming

Beautiful artwork enhances this lovely, simple tale about two moms getting married. – Kinzie Things

My thoughts bit:  This is a beautiful picture book they Ken Setterington. Ken is a Canadian author and Librarian!

This board book scheduled to arrive fall of 2020 is diversity at its finest. Jack and his sister are thrilled that their Moms are getting married. This book gently explores the questions that might be in a child’s mind: Will the grandparents attend? Will I be a flower girl? And the answer to all the questions is a resounding, “Yes!”

The beautiful and detailed illustrations by Alice Priestly do a wonderful job of expressing the joy and celebration in this short tale of love and family.

This board book a sweet confirmation that a marriage between two moms will be the same joy-filled experience as any other wedding. Perfect for preschool-aged children!
