In Our Mother's House by Patricia Polacco

I absolutely enjoyed this picture book. I picked the book up on a whim at Borders an once I started the book I couldn't put it down. On fact I read it twice. The story is told in the voice o the first adopted child is a lesbian couple. The story tells how her home is filled with love an how almost everyone is supportive. There is a mean, judgmental neighbor but the story does not dwell on it and there is no happy ever after with the neighbor. The story shows that not everyone will accept you but you should be happy accepting yourself.
5 stars
