And Tango Makes Three


And Tango Makes Three

Written by Justin Richardson & Peter Parnell

Illustrated by Henry Cole

32 pages

Roy and Silo live at the penguin house at the Central Park Zoo in New York City. They are a little different from the other males:they are not interested in the female penguins… but in each other. Soon a zookeeper notices their loving relationship and decides like the other penguins at the zoo they too should experience what it means to have a family. They are soon offered a fertilized egg to hatch and become the proud parents of little Tango, the first penguin to have two dads.

And tango makes three is an award-winning heartwarming true story of two penguins who create a non-traditional family, based on love.

We recommend this picture book for children ages 3-6.
