About this deal

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! Theresa is the cohost of the parenting humor podcast One Bad Mother and the coauthor of You’re Doing a Great Job! 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.

The long-awaited second instalment in Samantha Shannon's Sunday Times and New York Times-bestselling series Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory. Indeed, some see it as promoting forms of conversion therapy (which is formally the case in Iran of course). The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and.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. Because this book provides no rationale or explanation for why someone would reject their original gender identification, it throws around adult language and concepts in a way that a child is unlikely to understand without intensive parental guidance or existing life experiences with gender-nonconforming family members or friends.

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. 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. 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. This would more concretely explain gender constructs without making it feel like the adults in their lives have no idea what they are talking about. I had a 4th grader that firmly believed that she was a cat, a few boys (2nd grade) who thought they were robots and all of them just trying to figure out who they are in the world, within themselves, and in relation to others.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. 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. 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.

This book throws around gender terminology without grounding it in any meaning or context, and I can imagine a child reading this and thinking, "Oh, I'm going to be a boy today! Children are invited to examine their own gender identity as easily as they examine their favorite color or food. They are looking for recruits to their own disturbed and unhealthy belief system, and they are feeding into and often funded by an unethical, weakly regulated market for drugs and surgery worth enormous sums of money. They are interested in independent creative projects that promote direct action towards mutual liberation.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.

Via fictionalized children, Thorn presents transgender, cisgendered, non-binary, gender-fluid, and gender identities that cannot be captured in words. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement. 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. Children should be allowed to be children without their gender being questioned (or encouraged to change) for liking pink, or football, or "boy things" or "girl things.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.
