You Be You! The Kid’s Guide to Gender, Sexuality, and Family by Jonathan Brafman, illustrated by Julie Benbasset

Reviewed by Jane Oliver-Purton (Library Staff)

This is a very factual and simply written book for children, discussing all kinds of things about love, attraction, marriage, the decisions about whether to have or not have children, as well as extensive information concerning gender identity. Written for children, it includes lots of colorful pictures, and does a great job of explaining phrases children may not have heard before. The chapters are short, and very easy to follow, and the entire book has a very kid-friendly vibe without being the least bit “cutesy.” I think this will be helpful to kids of all ages and their parents (and teachers.) I highly recommend it as a very good read about subjects that are often daunting to approach, approached in a very calm and informational manner.
