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. 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. 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. 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. In reality even advocates of this irrational “gender theory” concede that adults are right at least 99.

Especially wonderful is the way the illustrations explore further elements, such as diversity, intersectionality and non-gendered clothing and play, giving kids and parents even more avenues to discuss all the wonderful ways we can be different. 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. It is associated with movements to deprive girls of safe spaces, especially single sex school toilets and changing rooms.There is a lot of information to digest but Thorn is reassuring, repetitive, and connects with the audience through your/you pronouns. 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? This book says that the people present at a child's birth "make a guess" about what the child's gender is. The text can feel a little repetitive in areas, but it’s not out of place with such important and complex topic, and the ultimate lesson is about loving yourself and feeling free to express who you are in whatever way makes you feel comfortable.

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. I think one of the easiest selling points is actually the title because it's such a perfect statement that encapsulates so many parts of identity. Giving kids and adults a hopeful model for discussing (and embracing) one another's gender is just one of the gifts offered by this valuable narrative.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. Not only that, but this will help kids to understand themselves as well, if they feel different from those around them.

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. These are concerns that bring together feminists to the left of the political spectrum with religious believers to the right in a shared concern and growing anger at the failure to protect children from manipulation and abuse. 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. It would be much less confusing, and more accurate, if it actually said that you were assigned boy at birth because traditionally boys have a penis and girls do not. The back of this book provides additional information, terminology, and talking points for parents to explore, but even there, the author never models how to define gender itself, or how to encourage children to see past meaningless stereotypes without assuming that they are transgender.It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity is a children's picture book written by Theresa Thorn and illustrated by Noah Grigni, which introduces the concept of gender identity to young readers. It appeals especially to children with mental health problems that make them vulnerable and open to persuasion. Noah Grigni's illustrations are FANTASTIC and I hope this is only the first of many more books they illustrate! 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.
