And Tango Makes Three
by Justin Richardson

And Tango Makes Three is a children's book written by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson and illustrated by Henry Cole which was published in 2005. The book tells the story of two male penguins, Roy and Silo, who create a family together

Jacob’s New Dress
by Sarah Hoffman and Ian Hoffman
Jacob loves playing dress-up, when he can be anything he wants to be. Some kids at school say he can't wear "girl" clothes, but Jacob wants to wear a dress to school. Can he convince his parents to let him wear what he wants?

Mommy Mama and Me, and Daddy Papa and Me
by Leslea Newman
Daddy, Papa, and Me and Mommy, Mama, and Me are the first board books ever published for kids who live in two-dad and two-mom families. Both books depict a fun-filled day in the life of a happy, loving family.
From hide-and-seek to dress-up, then bath time and a kiss goodnight, there's no limit to what a loving family can do together. These books share the loving bond between same-sex parents and their children.
