Do any of you know a good childrens book about LGBTQ families? My friends' daughter is starting to ask questions why no one else has two daddies like her. A biracial one would be even better, since she's half black and half Mexican, and one of her daddies is half black and half Asian.

TIA

There is book called Daddy, Papa and Me by Andrew R. Aldrich ISBN #9780974200804

It is about two dads who have a interacial child.   That closest I could find.  Sorry if it doesn't help.
