And Tango Makes Three
Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell

This heartwarming story shows the beauty of non-traditional families and can help introduce this topic to young readers. The Central Park Zoo houses all kinds of animals, the penguins being among the ones that love living in pairs. Roy and Silo, two male penguins, are in love and desperately want a little penguin of their own. After seeing the two take turns sitting on a rock, the zookeeper gives them an egg to take care of. This little chick Tango completes Roy and Silo’s little family, showing that love isn’t exclusive to one type of family.
