What Makes a Baby by Cory Silverberg

This product was recommended by Danielle Sullivan from Neurodiverging

What Makes a Baby is a colorful, fun book about conception and birth that is inclusive of all kinds of families, including LGBTQ ones. It’s a staple in my house and a book that my children ask for over and over.


Mommy, Mama, and Me Book by Lesléa-Anne

This product was recommended by Lynda Fairly from Numlooker

The book’s message is to embrace your family’s differences, and it encourages children to feel optimistic about who they are, despite the differences in caregivers or household composition. Their caregivers may be the same sex as they are, but that does not in any way lessen the love between them. It also shows that no one is more important than their caregiver; there is no hierarchy in their relationships. The book is geared to young children but would also work well as a tool for teachers and parents who might be struggling with explaining to a young child that their caregiver may not be married or have a different gender identity than them. It can also help parents answer questions that their young children may have about other children with same-sex parents.


Pride by Rob Sanders

This product was recommended by Marilyn Gaskell from TruePeopleSearch

This book is my absolute favorite because not only is it fun for preschoolers, with its many illustrations, but it’s also full of interesting history about the Pride Flag. I used to read it to my niece and we both learned a lot while reading it!


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Special Edition by Becky Albertalli

This product was recommended by Colin Barker from FilterSmart

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli is a perfect example of homosexual agenda that was brought forward by people who opposed gay rights in US.


Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

This product was recommended by Colin Barker from FilterSmart

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston is funny and witty while focusing on the LGBTQ community’s generic struggles


Norman the Interested Cat by Cheryl Cage

This product was recommended by Cheryl Cage from NormantheInterestedCat

Norman and his friends pick out their outfits for their friend Flossie’s 2nd birthday. In doing so, they realize that expressing their individuality through clothes makes them feel happier. Bert ends up wearing his yellow sundress, while Murphy wears sparkles galore. Outfits have no gender in Norman’s world of animal friends, who are also Cheryl’s animal friends in real life 🙂
