Thank you so much for making this book available to my 4-year-old son who insists that he wants a husband. Wether it's a phase or he was born this way, he loves this book!

This is a very sweet story of 2 boy bunnies who love each other, and how everyone feels around them. It promotes acceptance and love for everyone. There are people who will not like the story, but all in all, it's a very uplifting tale.

Appparently, having a DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT counts as "offensive" in the Woke Era. Nothing in my comment is vulgar HOWEVER, those who happily scream "end fascism!" A
are more than wildly eager to muzzle those who have a different opinion.

Technically, this should be ZERO stars. I wasn't aware of the deplorable agenda of this terrible book until I sat down to read it with my sweet 5 year old. I felt blind-sided and duped. For those of you who may not be aware, this is a book that -hard as it is to believe- goes to great lengths to promote gay marriage to children. It goes even further, holding in contempt (and actually vilifying) those who hold different opinions (represented by an angry, demon-esque stink bug). We live in a world of contempt, where it is altogether too easy to run smear campaigns against an opposing belief, sayings things in PRINT that would be (hopefully) unthinkable to say to someone's face. Do you love someone who holds different beliefs than you do? Would you defend them if someone on your side viciously attacked them, as this "children's book" seeks to do to those who hold different opinions of marriage and family? This "children's book" deserves to be burned, for no other reason than that it promotes hatred of others. No one was ever won-over because they were screamed at and insulted. In penning this story, the party of "tolerance" proves they are anything but a propaganda machine, seeking a backdoor entry into the lives of anyone who dares to think differently than they.

Words to live and hope by: Stink bugs are temporary. Love is forever.

Presented to a child without any additional context, this is a lovely story about bunnies who love each other. The greater context outside the book, and why it was made, however, is divisive. It begs the frankly unanswerable question: is intolerance of intolerance equal to tolerance? This story is written out of earnestness, and yet it was created out of spite. To those that believe intolerance of intolerance is still intolerance, the existence of this book should make them conflicted. To those that believe intolerance of intolerance is a form of tolerance, this book should make them feel validated. The greater discussion takes place outside the covers of this book, because it is a simple children's book which boasts a positive message. It is the children reading that are the only real winners. The adults reading, however, are obliged to reconcile the ideas of the book's own creation with their beliefs about how best to approach coexistence with people we disagree with. For that reason, this book absolutely deserves to live on library shelves for multiple purposes to multiple audiences.

My takeaways: Love is love. Friends support one another. Stink bugs are bad. Vote.

I really liked the way the topic of same sex relationships/marriage was approached. It's a sensitive and endearing read aloud that is well illustrated and gets the point across well about the importance of valuing differences.

I really liked the book. I should add that the subject of gay marriage comes up in the book.

Wow, this is such a sweet story! I laughed, then I cried! Long live the love of Marlon and Wesley! I hope this sweet story of love, marriage equality and the importance of voting lives forever!
