Lets Talk About Diversity!

Heather Has Two Mommies - Leslea Newman, Laura Cornell

Guided Reading Level: L

Grade Level: 2nd-3rd

Summary: What kind of a family are you apart of? We all are different and come from different families, even Heather! Heather Has Two Mommies is about a little girl named Heather whose favorite number is two. She has two arms, two legs, two pets, and two mommies! 

Idea: With this book, I would be using it for a lesson on diversity. No matter where the child is from, and no matter what kind of family the child has, the teacher and students should be accepting towards that. It's all about diversity and open-mindedness! An activity that I would have students complete, as illustrated in the book, is to have students draw out their families and write a caption under it.
