I'm reading a book about different family types to the three year old. She discovers a page with a girl with two mothers and happily points at it saying she has two mothers as well.
Can we please have this kind of representation in regular books that aren't about as well?

Diversity in children's books matters and it would be best not to make it the topic of the book but to normalise it. Just make it normal a kid has two mothers and tell an interesting story for a change?

@AzureKingfisher casual representation is *extremely* powerful, especially in media targeted at children. If kids find it normal that someone has two moms/dads/more than two parents then it's much less of a deal later on.
