The other animals of the earth are SO interesting—thankfully, we have Derrick, Izzy and Abby to take us on a trip through the zoo and teach us some fauna-tactic facts! We aren’t the only creatures on this planet to love others of the same sex, change our genders or have complex family structures. Come along with these kids and learn a bit about the queerness of nature.
