This brightly illustrated children's book provides a straightforward introduction to gender for anyone aged 5-8. It presents clear and direct language for understanding and talking about how we experience gender: our bodies, our expression and our identity. An interactive three-layered wheel included in the book is a simple, yet powerful, tool to clearly demonstrate the difference between our body, how we express ourselves through our clothes and hobbies, and our gender identity. Ideal for use in the classroom or at home, a short page-by-page guide for adults at the back of the book further explains the key concepts and identifies useful discussion points.

This is a one-of-a-kind resource for understanding and celebrating the gender diversity that surrounds us.

Although the intention is good this book presents the concept of gender in a way that I found much too complicated for the understanding of its audience. I would recommend other resources on the topic instead. There are a few good things in the book but a lot of kids will end up more confused instead of understanding the concepts which are important concepts to teach.

This is probably a good book for older grade school kids and teachers. Definitely not for 3+, maybe 6+. I tried to read it with my preschooler who was 3 at the time (now 4) and he got bored. The terminology is useful and good, but a bit advanced for little ones. Probably a good book for educators in elementary school and up but not for the preschool crowd.
