@wrkbrk: A lot of libraries let you order books online and pick them up. My local libraries even have drive-through services. Life changing.

My 4 yr olds favorites right now are The Goodnight Train & I Love My Daddy. Goodnight Moon was a favorite before that.

@nana87: we just got Julian Is A Mermaid from the library. Love it!
Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote - Duncan Tonatiuh
I Love My Hair - Angela Johnson
So Much - ???
Eight Animals Play Ball - Susan Middleton Elya
The Bedspread - Sylvia ???
Mama Do You Love Me - Barbara M Joose
I like Mo Willems, but now that I've been reading Elephant and Piggie for 4 years it drives me nuts that Piggie is always quietly doing Gerald's emotional labor for him. YMMV

Karma Wilson's Bear book series - excellent stuff and perfect for that age :). rhyming (but not annoyingly so), sweet, warm, and kind).

@agold: me too! And they’re actually my 18 month old’s favourite and have been for a good 7 months. Other books are vetoed.
Chicka chicka boom boom is a fun one. We go to the library a lot so that we have new ones to add in to ours.
I love myself is one I quite like.
@Mrs. Turtle: What others (if any) do you have that feature two moms, either directly or indirectly? We have the one you mentioned and several Todd Parre books!!
@irene: Baby Loves Science - in the cart! Very cool!!
Thanks again to everyone. I researched every single book mentioned that we dont already have I now have a cultivated list of 19 new ideas for books so I can add to our library over time!!!!

@wrkbrk: The only other ones I can think of that we own are:
Heather Has Two Mommies
Mommy, Mama and Me
Both have been huge favorites, which makes me think we need to get more!
@Mrs. Turtle: Ah ok I dont have the Heather one. On the list! Thanks!!
@Hypatia: This is amazing -TY!
@wrkbrk: It's so good. And it helped when she was anxious about school too! I googled books with two moms and I have a bunch more ideas-I'll be placing an amazon order soon!

Late to this thread, but just thought I'd add some that I've come across while researching diverse books for my registry (various reading levels/ages). All came highly recommended!

Here We Are
The Hello Atlas
I Am Human: A Book of Empathy
I Am Enough

I know you have a TON of suggestions here but I also wanted to suggest that Scholastic sells "classroom library" sets and my sister in law sends them to us for Christmas usually - I'm not sure if you have to be a teacher to get them but worth checking into. This year she got a 4 pack of Elephant and Piggie books, a 4 pack of "winter" themed books, and a 4 pack of books about kindness! My 4 year old loves them and they are more along the "early readers" line so they'll grow with him for a few years.
