Description

In reality even advocates of this irrational “gender theory” concede that adults are right at least 99. What children feel may be a moot question, but how they articulate their feelings is in the language and categories adults teach them. They also have friends like Alex – who is both a boy and a girl – and JJ, who doesn’t feel like either.

It is of utmost importance we encourage children to find their place in the world-- this book has the power to change a child's life for the better. Children are invited to examine their own gender identity as easily as they examine their favorite color or food. If we had to wait for babies to talk before understanding such basic, fundamental human biology as the sex of a baby, medicine and surgery would be a pretty haphazard affair. Theresa Thorn is the cohost of the parenting humor podcast One Bad Mother and the coauthor of You're Doing a Great Job!There is a lot of information to digest but Thorn is reassuring, repetitive, and connects with the audience through your/you pronouns. Noah graduated from Lesley University in 2018, with a BFA in illustration and a minor in creative writing. When our friend's 11 year old (AFAB) affirmed his identity as a boy, we gave them a copy of the book to share with their friends and it really helped them as well. 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. I'm glad this book exists, and I do think it's a good resource- I'm just not sure how engaging a child would find it, because it's not a story, it's a set of explanations of terms.

Written by the mother of a transgender child and illustrated by a non-binary transgender artist, It Feels Good to Be Yourself provides young readers and parents alike with the vocabulary to discuss this important topic with sensitivity.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. 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. 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. Grigni's illustrations feature gender-expansive individuals going to school, making art, and spending time with family – normalizing everything. This book is essential reading for children in this wonderful age where people are (for the most part) free to be themselves.
