Love Wins

The fictional Rumplepimple’s family structure is just like the real Rumplepimple’s. He has two mommies and a sister cat. My wife and I believe strongly that providing books that show families of a variety of structures makes sense, because children live in all sorts of familial configurations. Some live with a mom and dad, some with just one of each, some with two of one or the other. Some live with grandparents, others with foster parents, and that’s just a few examples. Social belongingness and acceptance is important for kids. They want to feel “normal”. They want to read about families like their own. Rumplepimple shows that parents act like parents regardless of gender or biological relationship. And that love is what is important.
