Book Review

A short overview of this book

You Be You! The Kid’s Guide to Gender, Sexuality, and Family by Jonathan Branfman and illustrated by Julie Benbassat is a lovely book that will help parents to guide their children to understand, accept and (hopefully) celebrate diversity.

Books like this are really important for both kids and their parents. 

For kids, it helps them to understand that there are many kinds of people in the world and that diversity should be celebrated. So it explains the different types of diversity and what it can mean. The language is child-friendly and easy to understand.

For parents, it gives you a resource that can make it easier to explain topics that they may struggle to talk about. Topics like biological sex and gender, gender identity, love & attraction, who can have kids, discrimination, privilege, intersectionality and being an ally. Plus it will help you to reinforce the message that everyone is different and that’s okay. 

The book is divided into small sections, with each topic simply explained (with lots of great examples). This means that you can either read the whole book at once or by the chapter.

So if you’re a parent who wants to grow up kids that will help to make the world a better place, then this book is a great way to get started!
