And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson
And Tango Makes Three

Student Teacher, March 20, 2010

This book is ridiculous. In reality, the penguin, Silo, has a female mate named Scrappy. I read that gay activists wanted to isolate the male penguins and keep the zoo keepers from introducing them to females. But as soon as they did, guess what? Nature took over. And male went with female.

This is a good book for young children because they can actually feel the bear's fur. It's a cute story that keeps their attention.

It's Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health (Family Library)
It's Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health (Family Library)

Student Teacher, March 20, 2010

I saw this book on display in my college library. It was in the children's section that is open to the public. I couldn't even read half of it because I was so embarrassed and uncomfortable. This book is not the right way to teach your kids about the birds and the bees. It shouldn't even be read by adults! It perverts the beauty of sexuality and talks about things that kids don't even need to know. I would consider it a pornographic book. Anyone who reads this book to children should go to jail for child abuse. This book will poison young (and old) minds.

If You Give a Cat a Cupcake (If You Give... Books) by Laura Numeroff
If You Give a Cat a Cupcake (If You Give... Books)

Student Teacher, March 20, 2010

My experience with this series has always been good. This one is my favorite. I used it in a nursery rhyme unit to go with Pat-A-Cake. The children wanted me to read it more than once. It's short, but sweet.

King & King by Linda De Haan
King & King

Student Teacher, March 20, 2010

I was introduced to this book in a children's literature class. I would never read this to children (or anyone) because it promotes homosexuality. Children would be very confused after listening to this book. It's just not right.
