These books bust gender stereotypes. They also feature LGBTQ families and kids. I couldn’t find the perfect phrase to encompass both of these, but I liked “gender expansive” which I saw in a recent School Library Journal article on gender expression and early learning. And I’m sneaking this in just before the end of Pride month (though we should be Proud all year!).

Your book lists are always so wonderful! I wish you included the Title and Author’s Name as text though. Not being able to copy and paste the titles into our library catalog or goodreads can mean the difference between remembering to put a title on hold and putting it off “for when I get a chance” for busy children’s librarians.
I understand. I’ve also had a request to include the publication date. When I first started this series I didn’t think about how long adding in those details would take. It’s a lot of time! So for now I’m just doing book covers because it’s all I have time to do if I want to keep the series going. But I totally hear you and will keep this feedback in mind for the future.
