This book is a terrific start. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) With its cute critters, sweet story, and messages of equality, this is a first purchase that celebrates the fact that love always wins. -- School Library Journal A witty and playful story...Adults looking for some assistance in explaining marriage equality will find this a concise and useful too. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
