    I honestly cannot thank you mamas enough! This is a superb list. I hope others have used it too so we can spread the wealth/knowledge!

    @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!!

    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!

    @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!

    One Family
    Ron's Big Mission
    Here We Are

    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.
