Reviews - What do customers think about Tres Con Tango / And Tango Makes Three?

If you've been living under a rock, you may not have heard about this book  Aug 3, 2008
So, let's clear it up at the start for all of you who may be shocked, shocked I say, at the content.

This is a story about a same-sex penguin couple and their adopted chick. It's a true story. This behavior is actually pretty common in the non-human world. If this disturbs you, hit the back button on your browser now.


Okay, now, for the rest of you. There are two ways of dealing with a "controversial" topic. You can put it in the background, normalizing it, or you can make it the focus. This book chose the latter option.

I was a little worried that the text of the book might be too stuffy, because, after all, it's an "issues" book, right?

I was wrong.

It really is well-written, as just what it is - a sweet story about two penguins in love who really want a little chick of their own. It's not heavy handed, it's not overdone, it's perfect. (And, bonus, my nieces both loved pointing out the animal clock by the zoo. We stop by there every time we're in the area, because I used to stop by there with my dad. Nice connection for NYC families!)

I definitely recommend this book for anybody who is not against the message of "Love makes a happy family". (Or the other message of "Penguins are really cute.")
Adorable book!  Jul 25, 2008
This book is a fun sweet read. We live in a world with many types of families.When a child is loved and feels safe, that is a family!
Beautiful and True: Give your kids the Gift of Understanding  Jul 20, 2008
A wonderful book that's a true story of two male penguins who were allowed to raise an egg on their own. A great way to introduce 'other' types of families to children. For open-minded adults who want to encourage open-mindedness and understanding in their children. I would recommend this book to any parent who has the foresight to introduce the topic of 'non-traditional' families to their children before other kids with less understanding parents provide them with biased and untrue opinions.
Book shows diversity in today's families! (Great Book)  May 29, 2008
This is a wonderful book about the diversity in today's families. Americans need to realize that we are a diverse population and children have gay parents. Children live normal healthy lives with gay parents. If all families were the same it would be a very dull world!

I recently gave "And Tango Make Three" to my nieces (5 & 7). This was a great way to tell them about my plans to adopt. They are thrilled at the prospect of having a new cousin. They also loved the book!
Not for children  May 19, 2008
This book is too much for children. I did go read about it at the Zoo website, it's interesting, but that is all. Buy a different book for your kids.
