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 #diversity 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.
