Help kids make sense of who they are and how they feel with this illustrated guide to understanding and answering questions about gender.

What is gender and what does it mean to you? What are ways people express their gender? What if you don’t feel like the gender everyone says you are? This new resource is here to help kids make sense of who they are and how they feel.

As you grow up, you receive lots of messages about gender. Most kids start to define their own gender identity as early as age four! But what if the messages you receive don’t seem to describe you? What if the things you like don’t match who people say you are? What if you don’t even know what gender you are?

From the illustrator behind What Are Your Words? and other books on gender and personal identity, comes a resource for all kids, of any gender. This fun, heavily illustrated chapter book explains the basics of gender identity—what it is, what it means, and how to support yourself and others no matter who you are.

★"This is a handy book to have around when a child (or an adult, for that matter) starts asking questions about sexual identity or gender roles. Definitions and descriptions are provided in straightforward, easy-to-understand language, and concepts are supported by cheerful cartoon characters, comparison charts, checklists, and other helpful graphics."Booklist
