About the Book
In the zoo there are all kinds of animal families. But Tango's family is not like any of the others.
From the Publisher
And Tango Makes Three is the bestselling, heartwarming true story of two penguins who create a nontraditional family.
At the penguin house at the Central Park Zoo, two penguins named Roy and Silo were a little bit different from the others. But their desire for a family was the same. And with the help of a kindly zookeeper, Roy and Silo get the chance to welcome a baby penguin of their very own.
Selected as an ALA Notable Children’s Book Nominee and a Lambda Literary Award Finalist, “this joyful story about the meaning of family is a must for any library” (School Library Journal, starred review).

"Tango Makes Three rises above the message it carries and becomes the rarest of birds, a ''message book'' that''s also a really good story."
