Around his third birthday, my son started showing signs of gender nonconformity — wearing a dress, growing his hair out and only playing with dolls while insisting he was boy and preferring masculine pronouns. My husband and I have been committed to showing our son positive examples of differently gendered people in literature. More importantly, we use these books to teach about love, acceptance, equality, empathy, and the beauty of diversity. Read these books to your child to help them better understand their gender identity and be a better friend to the boy who has long hair and wears a skirt or the girl with the short spiked hair who only wears pants. This book cleverly delivers the important messages of acceptance, understanding, and confidence in bold, bright colors and silly scenes. It inspires kids to celebrate their individuality through acceptance of others and self-confidence. You are special and important just because of being who you are.

If you loved Introducing Teddy , here are our favorite books to help your child understand gender as a spectrum rather than a binary categorization. Exploring gender, bodies, and sexual orientation, this book discusses respect, boundaries, and safety in an open and thoughtful way that facilitates similarly open and thoughtful conversations. What we love: The four narrators, Zai, Cooper, Mimi, and Omar, ask many questions that are helpful for young readers to consider and respond to. Explanations provided within the book are ungendered which is extra great when it comes to body parts! Things to know: This book is not entirely about the gender spectrum.
