Annotation: This book is about two male penguins who fall in love. They are different from the other penguins because they couldn’t lay an egg, so the zookeeper gave them an egg. They adopted it, took care of the penguin when it hatched, and they were a happy family with a baby named Tango, because it takes two to make a tango.
Grade Level: 1-2
