Toddler books with one parent families?

Is anybody out there? I have no idea if anyone reads this blog or not. Although, having said that I realize there isn't much to read yet. And, perhaps, people aren't interested in 'negativity' which could be seen in my blog so far.

I started this blog because I wanted to connect with other single parents without having to join a single mom support group which, I have nothing against.. but I really dont' have time.

I just want to share my experience and read other's, because I know this exchange of info will be helpful to me in so many ways: parenting ideas, a sense of belonging, a place to outlet parenting issues so that my friends who aren't parents aren't burdened or in an uncomfortable position.

Anyhow - if anyone is reading - I could use some suggestions for toddler books that address single parenthood. Almost everything I've come across is about children of divorce. This doesn't work for me. My daughter's "dad" is not a part of her life AT ALL. This is his choice. So, I need a book where the family is a family with just one mom............................ Anyone?

I came to suggest Todd Parr's 'The Family Book', but singleparentdad's link already has.

Well... a second vote for that one. It's already in my son's library for the day when he starts wondering about our little family. (His dad is also not involved at all - his choice.)
