I really like this one! It's especially useful for introducing kids *without* same-sex parents to the concept of same-sex parenting. "There are gay men and lesbian women in every community. They work and teach and help others and make friends...same-sex parents love and protect and take care of their children just like all parents do. They take you to school or the doctor. They teach you respect for others and the difference between right and wrong. They also do fun stuff, too, like play with you, cuddle with you, and read with you."
