Many of you may have heard of this book “And Tango Makes Three”. It is a children’s book based on a real story about two penguins in the Central Park Zoo in New York. I guess what happened in real life was that two penguins were observed trying to “hatch” a rock. When the zoo keepers understood what was happening they took an extra egg from another penguin and allowed these two male penguins to hatch the egg.
The book was written to show young readers that non-traditional families exist and that they are acceptable. The book has won numerous awards. School officials in Loudoun County, Virginia did not find it award winning material though. They banned it from the library.
