"A must-have...this is a delightful celebration of what makes a family.... Holzwarth beautifully renders the characters in a variety of hues, making the diversity showcased throughout one of the book's defining features and adding to the emotional punch of the story. All of the families look different, but the love they share makes them the same. Absolutely recommended for all children's collections and sure to be a storytime winner." --STARRED review, Booklist


When Riley's classmate tells her that one mom and one dad make a baby and that is what makes a family, Riley is confused. She has two dads and a belly mommy. As her friend presses on and asks her which dad is her real one, Riley is stunned If Riley is Papa's princess and Daddy's dragon, are they a family? Is she their daughter? Who is her real dad? Does she have a real dad? Riley has black hair like Daddy and freckles like Papa, and she definitely looks like her belly mommy. She likes to bake cookies and swim like her Daddy, and play basketball and sing like her Papa.
In this heartwarming story showing readers that some families can have one parent or two, some have stepparents, aunts, uncles, or grandparents, Riley learns that families are made of love. Her dads didn't give birth to her, but they carried her in their heart. They love her. They are a family. They all belong together. And Riley's Daddy and Papa are both her real dads.
