Book DescriptionLove Is Love empowers young readers to celebrate the family they have - no matter how it's constructed. A boy confides in a friend when he's teased for having two dads and for wearing a shirt that they deem is 'gay.' Kids tell him that they're not a real family, and he doesn't know how to respond. But our narrator realises that his friend's family (with a mum and a dad) isn't all that different from his: they both have parents who love them, and they both love their parents. And it's love that makes a family.
Editorial ReviewLove Is Love is a gentle yet straightforward story that shows that love is what makes a family. A great resource to discuss discrimination! - Colours of Us "Simple and beautiful... Definitely a picture book I wish had been read to me when I was a little kid!" - I'm here. I'm queer. What the hell do I read? "Love Is Love makes plain the truth of its title for all kids and parents. Children and young adults still face harassment because they have LGBTQ parents. In accessible and gentle language, Love Is Love tells the simple story of these families...spoiler alert...they are just like every other kind of family. The point is no child should ever feel stigmatized for having LGBTQ parents and by embracing all families, we are elevating our own and proving that love is love." - Kate Kendell, Esq., Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights "A heartfelt affirmation of queer love... A strong message." - Kirkus "Love is Love graciously calls into focus the fact that LGBTQ families are full of the same main ingredient as their peers' families: love. In a day and age when we tend to focus on our differences, Love is Love is here to remind us that the love of family is a shared value across cultures and family structures, and it gives our children the language they need explain that." - Amanda Hopping-Winn, Chief Program Officer, Family Equality Council
