A beautiful story of two penguins who want their own family. Roy and Silo are both boy penguins who love one another and want to be like the other penguin couples and have a baby. Tango is that chance.
This true story of two penguins at the Central Park Zoo is told so simply. The idea that families are made up of people who love one another is woven seamlessly into the story. The illustrations are beautiful and compliment the story perfectly. My two year old daughter enjoyed the pictures of penguins building their nest, swimming together, and cuddled together as a family.
What makes a family? Love.
