#LoveWins

Today is the last day of Pride Month!  New York has been celebrating for the past few weeks and it has been making our city a sea of color.  

But the best part about this year’s Pride?  This past Friday, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states!  History was made and we, for one, couldn’t be happier or prouder of our country.

To celebrate the last day of the Pride celebration, we picked some of our favorite children’s books discussing love, joy, and celebrating our differences. 

1.  And Tango Makes Three, by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell

Two penguins come together to make a family and create quite a splash.  Why?  They’re both male penguins.  Their love for each other and desire for a baby penguin of their own breaks down barries while opening eyes, minds, and hearts.

2.  I Wish You More, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

  • This lovely new picture book is filled to the brim with good wishes for the reader and characters within.  Wishes for love, laughter, happiness, peace, and ultimately acceptance.  This is a heart-warming treasure that is destined to grace favorites lists forever.
  • 3.  Mommy, Mama, and Me by Leslea Newman
  • Mommy, Mama, and Me details a day that a toddler spends with her mommies.  Whether they are playing in the park, or reading a bedtime story together, the love is felt and depicted beautifully through these illustrations and the easy text.  A must-have for children of all types of families.
