About this deal

It is associated with movements to deprive girls of safe spaces, especially single sex school toilets and changing rooms. She lives in Los Angeles, California, and It Feels Good to Be Yourself is her first book for children.

I will definitely recommend this to my friends with kids, frequently put it on display at my library, recommend it whenever possible, and read it aloud as often as I can. In reality even advocates of this irrational “gender theory” concede that adults are right at least 99.She is a transgender girl; when she was little, everyone thought she was a boy, but when she was old enough to speak for herself, she let everyone know the truth. For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation. June, at least in my part of the world is LGBTQ Pride Month, which I plan to read one children's book, which pertains to the subject everyday this month.

With child-friendly language and vibrant art, It Feels Good to Be Yourself provides young readers and parents alike with the vocabulary to discuss this important topic with sensitivity. 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. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.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. Another great new book to help start conversations about gender identity for kids who are asking questions and adults who are supposed to know the answers. 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! 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. Via fictionalized children, Thorn presents transgender, cisgendered, non-binary, gender-fluid, and gender identities that cannot be captured in words.

Theresa's proceeds from the sale of this book are going to support Gender Spectrum, which works to create gender sensitive and inclusive environments for children and teens. This expansive, straightforward framing of gender emphasizes curiosity, joy, and positive self-expression . What children feel may be a moot question, but how they articulate their feelings is in the language and categories adults teach them. 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. The narrative offers an inclusive primer about gender that integrates vocabulary words and definitions into the texts that is so simplistic that the target audience could understand.They also have friends like Alex – who is both a boy and a girl – and JJ, who doesn’t feel like either. Because this book completely neglects to mention that many people are happy with their gender identities from birth while still pursuing interests and self-expression outside of socially prescribed stereotypes, it's going to confuse a lot of kids, causing them to question their gender identity when they really just need the message that girls can play with trucks too, or that boys can take ballet. Through beautiful illustrations and simplistic text, this children book defines the multi-faceted concept of gender identity, which goes beyond boys and girls, but to some people who are both, neither, and in-between.

The weirdest thing about this book is how it's like, "Rosie's parents thought she was a girl, but she's actually a boy," without explaining what either of those words mean or why these concepts are significant in society. It's not like hearing those words makes you trans, just like reading books with queer representation doesn't turn you gay (if only! This dangerously stupid and misleading book sets out to teach children to think and speak in confused terms about their feelings and it advocates the bizarre possibility that they [or their school friends] may actually be born into the wrong body, a mad, almost medieval proposal that any sane parent would not wish to be promoting to children as young as four. This picture book belongs in every school and library: it is not just essential for those with gender nonconforming children in their lives, it is also a critical tool for discussing issues of gender identity and expression in a way that is empathetic, respectful, and affirming. Parents must lead their children, in love and wisdom, to be their best selves in their God-given biological gender.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Theresa Thorn is the cohost of the parenting humor podcast One Bad Mother and the coauthor of You're Doing a Great Job! An informative book, rather than a story, explaining the concept of gender in a way that is straightforward and easy for children to grasp. Very simple, clear, and gentle, with adorable illustrations showing a variety of characters with different gender expressions. This book is essential reading for children in this wonderful age where people are (for the most part) free to be themselves.
