A Tuesday Kind of Love by Lyndsi Richards (out March 24, 2020)

This vibrant and vulnerable picture book follows the love story of gorilla Lani and monkey Kanoa and their journey to becoming parents. But after their twins Lili and Koi are born, they begin arguing and missing the lives they had when they were on their own. They make the difficult decision to separate, but are determined to show their children that they still appreciate one another, as Kanoa swings down and brings the mother of his children flowers every Tuesday.
