Summary

Two is enough when it's me plus you!

Two is enough for
joy . . .
love . . .
comfort . . .
support . . .
celebration . . .
a family.

From playing in the snow to a rainy-day ride, to double-scoop treats and crash-landing in leaves, two can be the perfect number for creating life's memories. And two can definitely be enough for a warm family, full of the love, support, and comfort that every child needs.

reviews

“Each sweetly illustrated page is just a glimpse of everyday life, but for children in two-person families surrounded by bigger clans, also a reminder of the immense love in their own homes, too.”
—The New York Times

"Mourning's wispy figures playfully cavort through the four seasons, with large smiles, high-fives, and hugs. There is no shortage of encouragement and love."
—Kirkus Reviews

"[I]n this tribute to single parents and their singleton offspring . . . Matthies never explicitly compares these families to others, nor does she talk about the choices or circumstances that created the pairings. She keeps her message simple and clear: Head counts don't matter. All you need is love."
—Publishers Weekly

“This sweet picture book is a warm and loving celebration of tiny families.—Booklist
