This book is brilliant, and so long overdue in my opinion.
I am not LGBTQ+ myself, so I can't speak personally about this book, but as an alley of the community I think this book is fab!
I will be buying this for all my family and friends children! I love the rhymes, I love the illustrations.
I also love how subtle it is - it isn't too in your face or preachy, and you can go into more detail with it, or it can just be a positive book for your little people. I have read a few books recently on this topic, and this is by far the best as it fundamentally just focusses on being kind, and being positive. I loved this and think it should be in every community and school library right now!
Perfect!
