Overview

This picture book for young children presents the traditional, Judeo-Christian view of the family in picture-book format. In school, young Michael learns that God made men to be fathers and women to be mothers. After school, his father takes him to the zoo, where he learns that animal families consist of a male, a female, and their offspring. Upon observing these phenomena, Michael asks his father two questions: 1. Why does his friend have two fathers? 2. Am I adopted? His father sensitively addresses both of these questions with love and compassion, and he tells Michael that he needs to pray for his friend and his friend's two fathers. His dad lets him know that he is adopted and that he and his mother love him very much. This timely book will help children to understand God's plan for the family.

    Bigotry wrapped in religion is still bigotry. After all the bible supports slavery and killing children who talk back. Disgusting book.

    Hopefully one day soon, books like this one will be a thing of the past.  

    The younger generation doesn't need to be taught intolerance and bigotry.  They need to be taught acceptance and understanding.  
    Religious indoctrination wrapped up in a cute package with nice pictures and seemingly nice words is still religious indoctrination.  
    Please know that this book will harm your children, not help them.  [If I could have give this ZERO stars I would have.]

    Despite the "sweet" cover and the "kind" words, hopefully few will be "fooled" by this transparent tripe! I can only imagine the psychological damage that could be done reading this nonsense to a LGBT kid! Disgraceful!

    Hate is Hate, even when wrapped up nicely to try and make you feel better about it.  Kids have to be taught this stuff simply because it
    doesn't come naturally to children to hate each other or separate themselves based on perceived differences.  That's taught, and very,
    very sad.

    Awful.   Why would people want to teach their children to look down on their neighbors?  

    Isn't is interesting that Amber's book has an interracial mom and dad?   Seems it wasn't all that long ago that these same "Christians" were using their bible to tell us about "God's plan to keep the races separate."

    I honestly find it a bit disturbing that Barnes and Noble even carries this bigotry.. Almost as disturbing as a group of people who can't seem to wrap their minds around, or simply accept the fact that homosexuality is common by todays standards.. Its a controversial matter because people like Amber Dee Parker make it one, while the rest of the civilized and open minded world are more or less accepting of it..Amber, if you or you agent or some other big wig shmuck in your pyramid scheme, bigot regime happens to read this, let me be the first to say "Your Wrong, and should be ashamed of yourself for even having the gull to write such nonsense."

    God is love. Period. This book reminds me of the movie 42, where the young white boy is sitting in the crowd to see his uncle play, and when Jackie Robinson comes out everyone around him starts yelling the N word. The boy is confused at first, but then joins in because he sees his dad and others doing it. This deeply saddens my heart. I will be praying for you and Hannah to truly find out what love and being a Christian is all about. Although I do like that in the attempt to show that you're aren't completely bigoted, you made Michael's dad kind of brown. You realize Christians thought interracial marriage was a sin until recently, as well?!  Something to think about I guess.....

    I find it very ironic that this book features an interracial couple - something once as illegal in this country as gay marriage is now! As for the content and intention - it is appalling how someone would actually feel so threatened by love that doesn't fit into their own tiny belief system, that they'd write a book for children about it. Sad.

    I found this book to be exceptional. I bought this for my son, and we read it together.

    Less than a week later, he saw two men walking together. One of them had a shirt that was purple, so he expressed some concern that they might be queers. While beating them to check, I was able to talk about the book, and how we were doing God's service!

    They never admitted being queers, but that's because the Beast makes them lie, and all and all it was a great family outing for us.

    Amber Dee Parker does an absolutely marvelous of showing how demented and disgusting her mind works. She carefully crafts her hateful thoughts in such a manner as to make them attractive to little children with the obvious intention of teaching children that hatred of minority groups is a good thing and that they'll become better Christians by learning how to hate like she does.

    This book is just sad. Telling a child that his friends' are to be prayed for is just brainwashing. The book has outright misinformation (all the animals are the zoo are in families with one mother and one father? What zoo did she go to ?)

    I am disappointed in Barnes and Noble for choosing to carry this. I am all for freedom of the press but that doesn't mean vendors have to help peddle bigoted propaganda.

    The fact that the author was homeschooled brings to light an issue of a cycle of abuse and brainwashing. Homeschooled children should be monitored to ensure that they aren't being spoon fed intolerance.
