A great book for LGBTQ+ parents to show their child representation of a family who may look like theirs from a young age.

And Tango Makes Three By Justin Richardson & Peter Parnell.

This is a sweet and interesting book that is based on a true story. It is about two male penguins who fall in love and essentially adopt a baby penguin as their own with the help of a zookeeper. It is a great way to represent your child adoption into a same sex family.

A sweet story to help prepare children of LGBTQ+ parents for some of the questions they may receive from their peers growing up.
