They are going to learn about it anyway. Books are a tool for learning and opening doors to discussion with parents, not a replacement.
Why not just talk to your kids about the issue yourself instead of allowing them to read a book that is clearly trying to push an agenda? You can teach them that, while their "parents" are living in sin, it is not the child's fault and it's probably best to not mention the same-sex parents unless directly asked about it. Then they can simply state what the Bible says about homosexuality.
