     I think that it's a wonderful idea to self-publish some books featuring 2-mummy families. I agree that the illustrations are definitely key, as they provide most of the interest/starting points for conversations, but I also think that getting the right (often rhythmical) language is what often makes a book more readable over and over again. The books that Toby likes best all seem to have a rhythm to the storyline, rather than "Jack sees a car. It is a red car" type of thing.

    Not sure how versatile this subject matter would be - anyone else's child obsessed with vehicles? Am wondering how to make these stories have a wider appeal so that we could all use them?

    I think that Toby is definitely heading this way, as we have to walk down the street saying "car....car....car" for every vehicle that passes us or is parked by the pavement. He hasn't yet learnt separate words for lorry, van etc. let alone for quadbikes!! I'm currently trying to vary our car conversations by adding in colour descriptions  ;D

    im trying to have inspiration ... its amazing how slow at having creative ideas your brain gets.  im sure if i was at school and in a creative writing lesson i could have had several ideas by now!

    i have mentioned the idea to a couple of much more creative friends of mine.  so might see if they are gonna get involved.

    Someone in the States recommended
    http://www.4coolgals.com/ 
    to me as a site for lgbt memory/baby books.
    I've had a look through and they look good (although a bit Americanised eg baby shower, sonogram, etc)
    It doesn't say whether they ship to the UK but it can't hurt to email them & ask.
