Mama and Mommy and Me in the Middle is about a little girl who misses her mommy. Her favorite thing is to be in between her mama and her mommy but when her mommy leaves for a business trip, nothing is the same. The little girl and her mama work together through the week to adjust to life as they miss mommy, and concoct the perfect plan to welcome mommy home at the end of the week.

The story is illustrated with beautiful watercolor drawings that tug at the reader’s heartstrings. Mama and Mommy and Me in the Middle is the perfect story for a kid who is missing someone they love, especially a kid with LGBTQ+ parents who might not feel as seen by other books.
