And Tango Makes Three

Today I read "And Tango Makes Three" a book that you've probably all have heard of, and some of you might even have read. We've been meaning to get it out of the library for ages, but never got around it until now. Tango Makes Three is one of the most challenged books children's books in the United States. In this book, there were two male penguins in the Central Park Zoo, Roy and Silo. They acted to each other as though one were male and the other female. The two male penguins started building a nest, as all penguin couples did, but got no eggs (because of both being male). So the zoo keeper gave them an egg that wasn't being looked after. And Roy and Silo looked after it. Eventually, it hatched, and out came Tango!

Roy and Silo were good parents. Tango was the first penguin in the zoo (perhaps in the world) to have two daddies.

I loved this book because it's a very sweet story! I recommend it to kids aged five and up.
