Families come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. These wonderful ebooks can help you celebrate the richness and diversity of families today:

Baby’s First Words written by Stella Blackstone; illustrated by Christiane Engel
Spend the day with a busy baby and her two dads, and learn the words for things you do and see along the way! This innovative first-words book features labels for objects, actions, and sound effects, as well as a fun seek-and-find element.
This ebook is currently available on our Hoopla Digital Media platform.

Plenty of Hugs written by Fran Manushkin; illustrated by Kate Alizabeth
This cheerful book follows a family from morning to night in lively rhyme that rolls off the tongue. The toddler and mommies take a morning bike ride to a farm stand, they visit a zoo in the afternoon, and in the evening there’s the bath and storybook routine before the child is tucked cozily into bed.


Harriet Gets Carried Away by Jessie Sima
Harriet loves costumes. She wears them to the dentist, to the supermarket—and most importantly—to her super-special dress-up birthday party. Her dads have decorated everything for the party and Harriet has her most favorite costume all picked out for the big day. There’s just one thing missing—party hats! But when Harriet dons her special penguin errand-running costume and sets out to find the perfect ones, she finds something else instead—real penguins! Can Harriet manage her way back to her dads (and the party hats!) in time for her special day?


Pride Colors by Robin Stevenson
In this photographic concept book, babies and toddlers are introduced to the Pride flag and the meaning behind each color. Through gentle rhymes and colorful photographs of adorable children is a celebration of the deep unconditional love of a parent or caregiver for a young child. The profound message of this delightful board book is you are free to be whoever you choose to be; you'll always be loved.
This ebook is currently available on our Hoopla Digital Media platform.
