Tips to writing a children's book review: • A 2-3 sentence review is all we need, it doesn't have to be long • While reading the book through beginning to end, take notes mentally • Is there something that doesn't make sense to you? • Is there something, a line or a scene that really impresses you and/or your child that makes you laugh, think, feel? • Did you like the illustrations? • Does the book meet your goals and expectations? • How did it make you feel during and after reading the book? • What were your observations with your child? • Tell readers if you enjoyed it, and if you would recommend it, or if you think it's best left unread and why. • A good review is an honest one.

    I love these books. I think they are fantastic. Would love to see a version for same sex couples in the future! I know lots of couples who would love a book like this for their child

    Thank you Sarah,
    We are so pleased to hear that the book has given your family a sense of calm, as that is our whole intent for this book! If us parents can achieve a sense of calm our children will too.

    “I wanted to say thank you so much for producing this book. As a family we have enjoyed looking at the illustrations which are absolutely beautiful. They perfectly compliment the words and the palette is so subtle and calming. In fact calm is how reading this book makes me feel. It has been crafted with such love in the words and pictures that I know as a family we’ll be turning to it again and again.
    Thank you”

    Hi lauracharlie1988 , Thank you for your kind words and suggestion. We too would love to publish a version of our books for same sex parents. In fact, we are in the process of adapting the manuscript to meet this need. However, publishing and printing children’s books is very time consuming and very expensive, but our hopes are high! We want all children to be aware of their genetic and unique beginnings while encouraging strong parent-child communication skills as early as possible. Determining the priority of publishing which version next, will come from the demand and feedback requests such as your post. Thanks again, and here’s a link for others to let us know what version of our books they would like to see published next.
