Mommy's New Friend is a heartfelt, lyrical story about accepting a new family member, even if it’s not easy at first.

When That Guy comes over and makes homemade pizza for dinner, it’s not the same as before, when Daddy and Mommy and I would all eat together.

But That Guy takes care of Mommy when she’s sick, and That Guy laughs at my jokes.

Maybe, That Guy isn’t that bad, after all.

Shelley Tougas and award-winning illustrator Sara Palacios's Mommy's New Friend is a gentle and uplifting tale about growing up, learning new perspectives, and accepting how families can evolve and expand.
