Being You: A First Conversation About Gender

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
Based on the research that race, gender, consent, and body positivity should be discussed with toddlers on up, this read-aloud board book series offers adults the opportunity to begin important conversations with young children in an informed, safe, and supported way.

Developed by experts in the fields of early childhood and activism against injustice, this topic-driven board book offers clear, concrete language and beautiful imagery that young children can grasp and adults can leverage for further discussion.

While young children are avid observers and questioners of their world, adults often shut down or postpone conversations on complicated topics because it's hard to know where to begin. Research shows that talking about issues like race and gender from the age of two not only helps children understand what they see, but also increases self-awareness, self-esteem, and allows them to recognize and confront things that are unfair, like discrimination and prejudice. This book begins the conversation on gender, with a supportive approach that considers both the child and the adult.

Stunning art accompanies the simple and interactive text, and the backmatter offers additional resources and ideas for extending this discussion.

Written by Megan Madison and Jessica Ralli
