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. 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.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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. Note: A copy of this book was provided to The Baby Bookworm by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 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 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.

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. 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. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement. 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. 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 provides no real explanation or context for what gender means, why it is significant to people, or why anyone would feel a need to identify as something other than their sex at birth. I spent enough time struggling to figure out my identity without people telling me that I must be a boy. This book is woefully inadequate, and I'm glad that it didn't exist to confuse me when I was a child. They also have friends like Alex – who is both a boy and a girl – and JJ, who doesn’t feel like either.Really loved the joyful simplicity of this one, especially the soothing and celebrational repetition of the expansive phrase, "too many to fit in a book! 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.
