The Family Book by Todd Parr – A Common Core book for first-graders. The left wants to push their propaganda on kids as soon as they can read.

The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) has removed several books from its first-grade curriculum celebrating same sex parents.
Catholic Education Daily reported, via Free Republic:

An initiative to promote the controversial Common Core State Standards in Catholic schools, led by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), has amended a first-grade unit plan to remove three books celebrating families headed by same-sex or divorced couples.

The Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative (CCCII) removed The Family Book by Todd Parr and Who’s in a Family? by Robert Skutch from a recommended first-grade unit plan in English Language Arts after parental protest, according to journalist Mary Jo Anderson writing for Crisis Magazine.

And the Cardinal Newman Society has identified a third book that has been removed from the unit plan, All Kinds of Families by Norma Simon.

Although the CCCII’s original unit plan identified a revision date of July 2012, CCCII quietly removed the three books without acknowledging a new revision date in the current version or announcing the changes to the plan.

A review of The Family Book from the School Library Journal, cited at Amazon.com, describes the many different types of families celebrated in the book: “Some families include stepmoms, stepdads, stepsisters, or stepbrothers; some adopt children. Other families have two moms or two dads, while some children have only one parent.”
