Single Parents Rock! by Jaret Martino - Book Tour & Review

Book Blurb

A story about a creative, caring, and strong young girl who has the most caring heart and see's the world in ways we can all learn from! Shay knows just how special single parents are, and is excited to introduce you to the strong females in her family! When Shay turned 5, her Mom and Grandma got to work on making her party extra special! Shay is exuberant to invite her friend's from school and just met a new friend Nala. Through Shay's heart we see her embrace the world's differences with love. When her Grandma makes her a cape and a crown, she feels the magic and power of the long line of strong women that surround her.

My Review
Single Parents Rock is a super cute and inspirational children's book that teaches kids that just because a family may look different from another family, it doesn't make one less than the other. It's a story about a little girl who is celebrating her birthday, and she discusses how even though she only has a mom, her mom does everything she can to make sure Shay has a wonderful birthday (and childhood in general). Shay's friend Nala is also mentioned. Nala has two moms instead of just one (or a mom and a dad). Shay realizes that families come in all sorts of varieties, and that's just super. 
This is a lovely little story that kids (especially kids who come from single parent households) will enjoy and relate to. And it's a story that moms (especially single moms) will feel both validated by and empowered by. Regardless of what your family looks like--whether you have a mom and a dad, two moms, two dads, a single mom, a single dad, or some other variation--you matter. You are loved. Families (of all types) are awesome. 
5 stars!
