My Military Mom (My Family) – School Library Journal
A new entry in a series that aims to celebrate family diversity. The tone of the narrative is humorous and friendly, and Lenny (as well as readers) are able to gauge a lot about Conner and his father’s household. Persico’s especially charming digital illustrations make the text bright, warm, and accessible. . . . For libraries looking for more family-themed picture books.
My Two Homes (My Family) – School Library Journal
A simple and approachable glimpse at blended families and divorce. Skye refers to all of the adults in her life as her parents and gives them credit for teaching her all she knows about baseball. This is a warm and idealized look at blended families with happiness at each end. The stylized cartoon artwork features large-headed characters (they resemble bobble-head dolls) with extra large eyes and smiling expressions. A pleasantly painted picture of blended family life for the primary school crowd.
