What are Parents? by Kyme Fox-Lee

whatStoryTyme Publishing, 2005 ISBN: 0975369903

On the way from the nursery to her parents room, a supposedly newborn baby (who can already sit up) peers into other rooms to look at other new parents, in a variety of family configurations, wondering what parents are. Told in stilted rhyme, the baby learns that parents love, sing, teach, have faith, etc. Finally she arrives at the room of her own parents, a lesbian couple.

Cartoon-like unattractive computer-generated illustrations accompany the story.

There are other books that accomplish what this book sets out to do, that are both better-written, and better-illustrated.
