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. 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. Perhaps the most insidious is the misleading appeal that we learn to be kind to people who are different, an appeal to our good nature that works to disarm our critical faculties; seeking out the truth and opposing a harmful ideology does not entail being unkind or intolerant to its victims. It appeals especially to children with mental health problems that make them vulnerable and open to persuasion. I think this is a great book for those members of society who want to be sure their children grow up with every option open and available to them.

This book not only has a pretty color palette, but can help children to understand their peers that may differ from them-- especially at an age a person begins to form an identity. I don't wear makeup, paint my nails, wear fashionable clothes, or own a closet full of shoes, but that does not diminish the degree to which I am a girl. Children are invited to examine their own gender identity as easily as they examine their favorite color or food.Grigni's illustrations feature gender-expansive individuals going to school, making art, and spending time with family – normalizing everything.

Parents must lead their children, in love and wisdom, to be their best selves in their God-given biological gender. They also have friends like Alex – who is both a boy and a girl – and JJ, who doesn’t feel like either. Okay, a little more - love the illustrations and love the simple explanations that will hopefully give people a better idea of language surrounding gender and gender identity.Noah Grigni, the illustrator, mentions in their note at the end that they grew up without access to words like transgender.

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. What a baby's body looks like when they're born can be a clue to what the baby's gender will be, but not always. All in all, It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity is a wonderful children's book about the concept of gender identity told in a sweet and child friendly manner. 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.This book introduces the concept of gender identity to children, explaining the typical terminology that children will encounter in today's society, but despite its good intentions, gentle approach, and message of acceptance, it's likely to confuse more kids than it consoles.

It's not like hearing those words makes you trans, just like reading books with queer representation doesn't turn you gay (if only! Noah graduated from Lesley University in 2018, with a BFA in illustration and a minor in creative writing. This expansive, straightforward framing of gender emphasizes curiosity, joy, and positive self-expression .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. 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. The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and. 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. This sweet, straightforward exploration of gender identity will give children a fuller understanding of themselves and others.
