This book sets out to make a simple and easy to understand lesson on gender identity. It works and works well. The illustrations are lively and colorful, they make perfect sense with the information being given. This makes this a perfect book for those kids and adults who aren’t quite getting the idea of gender inclusivity. ( )

This picture book introduces gender identity to young readers in a simple straightforward way.
Some people are boys. Some are girls. Some are both, neither, or somewhere in between, This picture book sends the strong message that your feelings about your gender are real and you should listen to your heart. No matter what your gender identity is, you are OK and loved exactly the way you are. By introducing several characters throughout it's pages the book reveals many of the different ways to be a girl or boy or neither one and the correct terminology to describe their differing gender The illustrations are delightfully diverse. A child can easily find themselves or a friend on the pages. The author has included helpful vocabulary and discussion starters for teachers and parents in the end pages to aid in follow-up discussions and future conversations.

This book celebrates gender diversity and individuality in a wonderful social-emotional way. It helps children view situations from different perspectives, appreciate and value diversity, make inferences about the feeling of others, develop empathy and engage in prosocial behavior. It can be a mirror, window or sliding door for the reader.
