I always thought the farmer in Usborne's Apple Tree Farm series was a single mother because I'd read about a dozen with no mention of anyone but her, her two kids, and the farm hand. Then, the other day I came across one that suddenly mentioned picking up the Dad at the train station. I wonder if they suddenly decided to throw a father-figure into the picture to appeal to mainstream audiences??
The Amazing Grace series of books has a single mom, though grandma also lives in the home. It is a really good series. You can go to this website and request a booklist on a topic. The guy who runs it has students pick a theme and put together booklists on that theme that include a variety of genres so single parent families may have come up.
