Theresa is the cohost of the parenting humor podcast One Bad Mother and the coauthor of You’re Doing a Great Job! The back of this book provides additional information, terminology, and talking points for parents to explore, but even there, the author never models how to define gender itself, or how to encourage children to see past meaningless stereotypes without assuming that they are transgender. I'm glad this book exists, and I do think it's a good resource- I'm just not sure how engaging a child would find it, because it's not a story, it's a set of explanations of terms.

Her brother Xavier is a cisgender boy; when he was little, everyone thought he was a boy, and they were right! I had a 4th grader that firmly believed that she was a cat, a few boys (2nd grade) who thought they were robots and all of them just trying to figure out who they are in the world, within themselves, and in relation to others. No matter what gender someone identifies as, the most important thing is that they are loved, supported, and free to be themselves – doesn’t it feel good to be yourself?

Really loved the joyful simplicity of this one, especially the soothing and celebrational repetition of the expansive phrase, "too many to fit in a book! Giving kids and adults a hopeful model for discussing (and embracing) one another's gender is just one of the gifts offered by this valuable narrative.

Bought this for my kids (4 and 8) and it really helped them understand gender dynamics and the importance of identity. And with a book that’s perfect for our first Pride Month review: It Feels Good To Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity, written by Theresa Thorn and illustrated by Noah Grigni. It undermines parental choice in caring for their children and their ability to refuse experimental and unsafe medical interventions. Noah graduated from Lesley University in 2018, with a BFA in illustration and a minor in creative writing. Even if you firmly believe that gender is an imaginary concept without real implications for life, you still have to explain to children what the words "boy" and "girl" have always meant, and why they are such strong identifiers that someone would find it important to reject their initial label.It would be much less confusing, and more accurate, if it actually said that you were assigned boy at birth because traditionally boys have a penis and girls do not. Taking a concept that is often overwrought or misconstrued and simplifying it down to its core elements, this child-friendly look at the spectrum of gender covers a lot of ground without ever feeling overwhelming or confusing.

This sweet, straightforward exploration of gender identity will give children a fuller understanding of themselves and others. This dangerously stupid and misleading book sets out to teach children to think and speak in confused terms about their feelings and it advocates the bizarre possibility that they [or their school friends] may actually be born into the wrong body, a mad, almost medieval proposal that any sane parent would not wish to be promoting to children as young as four.JJ especially enjoyed the rich colors of the art (and that she shared a name with one of the characters). It is associated with movements to deprive girls of safe spaces, especially single sex school toilets and changing rooms.
