About My Extra Mom
My Extra Mom strives to dispel the myth of the "Evil Stepmother" and offers a positive outlook on what a healthy "modern family" can look like. Through her own experiences as a stepmom, Gina Grad has been inspired to create a children's book that offers assurance to both children and parents that stepparents offer security and stability in addition to, not in place of, what primary parents are already providing.
This newly released children’s book highlights the benefits of having an extra adult in a child's life who looks after them and loves them. It also offers suggestions, fun challenges and games that promote bonding between a stepmom and her stepchild.
My Extra Mom is a reminder to non-nuclear families that there is plenty of community and extra love to go around. This simple and innovative children's book provides a valuable resource for any family going through the "blending" process and emphasizes the importance of creating a positive environment for all family members to thrive.
