No matter what gender someone identifies as, the most important thing is that they are loved, supported, and free to be themselves – doesn’t it feel good to be yourself? An informative book, rather than a story, explaining the concept of gender in a way that is straightforward and easy for children to grasp. The long-awaited second instalment in Samantha Shannon's Sunday Times and New York Times-bestselling series Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory. As an elementary teacher I've seen kids struggling enough with the divide between reality and fiction that this book will just confuse children and give them adult language far before they are ready to hear it. The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and.

And with a book that’s perfect for our first Pride Month review: It Feels Good To Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity, written by Theresa Thorn and illustrated by Noah Grigni. but for those kids who feel isolated and unseen because something inside them doesn't quite fit it can open up an entirely new world.Alex and JJ are non-binary, and just like there are lots of ways to be a boy or a girl, there are lots of ways to be non-binary as well! Not only that, but this will help kids to understand themselves as well, if they feel different from those around them. These objections are sometimes associated with bigotry around alternative sexualities, but that is a distraction, because many gay and lesbian voices are no less outraged at this form of gender theory.

If one page had said, "George identifies as a sunflower," this would have been consistent with the whole approach. Via fictionalized children, Thorn presents transgender, cisgendered, non-binary, gender-fluid, and gender identities that cannot be captured in words. There is a lot of information to digest but Thorn is reassuring, repetitive, and connects with the audience through your/you pronouns.This book simultaneously manages to be concise and expansive, favoring an approach that recognizes the truly diverse forms gender can take ("more than could fit in one book") instead of attempting to pin down or define different gender identities too strictly. It is associated with movements to deprive girls of safe spaces, especially single sex school toilets and changing rooms. Even if you firmly believe that gender is an imaginary concept without real implications for life, you still have to explain to children what the words "boy" and "girl" have always meant, and why they are such strong identifiers that someone would find it important to reject their initial label.

It undermines parental choice in caring for their children and their ability to refuse experimental and unsafe medical interventions.This expansive, straightforward framing of gender emphasizes curiosity, joy, and positive self-expression . Their art ranges from vibrant watercolor illustrations, to meticulous anatomical drawings, to promotional graphics for activist groups. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement. She lives in Los Angeles, California, and It Feels Good to Be Yourself is her first book for children.
