Whoopsie

I take the kids to the library every week where Tyler picks out 3 videos and 3 books. His teacher told them that when a book has a gold circle on it that it means other people liked the book (a Newbury award winner etc.). Tyler saw the above book with a gold circle on it. He chose this book to read before bed tonight. I am reading along about penguin families when all of the sudden I realize the book is taking us on a little detour. It is about 2 gay penguins. I made up a story to go along with the rest of the book. Come on people- this book needs to have a warning for parents saying "Beware these are 2 BOY penguins, not your normal penguin family. " Unless you want to do some explaining do not get this book. When I googled this book to get a picture of the cover, I discovered that it was a hotly contested book. Silly me, I thought we were just picking out an innocent little penguin book.

Wow...I can't believe that they have gay penguin books. I'm glad you made up a story to Tyler.

I need to start going to the library more with Luke and Peyton!
