Illustrated by Naomi Bradoff

The author has included suggestions about how to use this book. She also includes resources and activities to help parents and caregivers define gender and to learn more about the topic.

Brook suggests that this book may or may not be the first introduction to gender discussions that you have with your child. I have learned that gender identification may be different than the sex assigned to a person at birth. It is more than the physical body. It includes what a person likes to do, how they like to dress, and how they express themselves. I love the way the book ends in bold letters:

There are lots of ways to be a boy. There are lots of ways to be a girl. There are lots of ways to be a kid.

This book allows adults and children to think about the question in the title, Who are you? It can be purchased from most book suppliers. Suggested for children four years old through the elementary years.
