"This is a great book for small children. We have a 2 year old and she really likes this book. We had a couple of friends over who have a 3 year old and she really loved the books as well. We have the number book as well." said.

"What makes this a book a "must-have" for any child, are the incredible illustrations. Regardless of your age, you find yourself trying to count all of the objects on every page. This book is so much fun and I cant wait to see more books illustrated by Danamarie Hosler !" said.

"This book is quite groundbreaking, and is excellent in the way it portrays our differences as not-so-different to children. Very thoughtful, well-written, and beautifully illustrated - a must have in any child's collection! 123 A Family Counting Book, and many more like it, cater to gay parents and their children." said.

"In a world where most trips to the bookstore end up with me leaving empty handed, its so great to finally find a book that i am comfortable sharing with my child. I am a heterosexual living the "accepted" life in a heterosexual marriage, and to me, it would be an utter crime to NOT share with my son and daughter ALL of the love on God's earth. Regardless of your religious or moral pursuasions, it is most important that our children understand love, and I am so pleased with this purchase...my children are too, and i know they will be better adults for it. Hopefully, if enough of us raise our children to respect one another we can make a difference. 123 is well written and the illustrations are brilliant. A+!" said.

"To the negative 1-star response, I find you to be hypocritical. You claim to want to show your child the diversity in the world, yet you continue to propagate hateful homophobia. Diversity doesn't bow down to your whims and fancies, it's a way/fact of life and whether or not you agree, you have to learn to accept it. A true parent would have explained to their child, that although a homosexual lifestyle may not fit into the family's belief system, there is no excuse to treat gays differently. Wasn't that your point to begin with????
I pity your child to have such a close-minded parent and I scoff at your silliness in burying a children's book.

"This is an excellent book! It is wonderful to see both racial diversity and homosexuality explored in the same book - a rare thing indeed. It is important for children to see all people and see that families come in all forms and for children to learn to respect and appreciate this diverse world they will live in. Buy the book, your children will be richer for it!! I was atonished, as were others, to see the review posted by the woman who was upset by the content of the book. Clearly, she has taught her child to hate - as her child's comments suggested - and I'm not sure why she bought the book, also no parent "owns children" as she suggested. Anyhow, a great book all around and a wonderful opportunity to provide your child with a window into a world that may not (or may be) the same as his/her own." said.

"123 A Family Counting Book
This appears to be a straightforward counting book, with one sentence for each number accompanied by wonderful artwork showing happy families in various settings. Yet although not discussed in the text, the pictures depict all types of diverse families, including transracial and two-dad families. A great book for showing diverse families celebrating family life just like all families, and for introducing what may be a sensitive concept to children as a subtext rather than by overt discussion.
