June is National LGBTQ Pride month, which is a perfect time to discuss community, family, tolerance and love with our little ones. Children’s books are an amazing way to start a conversation about the diversity of families. Here are my personal stand out favorites of books adding to the LGBTQ dialogue.
A Tale of Two Daddies or A Tale of Two Mommies
It's Okay to be Different
Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away with Another Spoon
I Am Jazz
Morris Micklewhite and the Tangering Dress
Families, Families, Families
One Dad, Two Dad, Brown Dad, Blue Dad
These are just a few examples of amazing books which take on the topic of diversity and inclusion. If you are looking for more, please check out the Association for Library Service to Children. They have an entire lists of amazing LGBTQ books for readers of all ages. Also, don't forget that even though June is National Pride month, these classics are classics year round.
