June is LGBT Pride Month! In order to celebrate, we’ve put together a list of some our favorite kids’ books that are by, for, or about LGBTQ+ families. Pick a few new favorites from the list and read along with us this month as we celebrate love, diversity, and equal rights. Happy Pride 2017!
We’ve linked to each of the book titles on Amazon, but make sure to check your local library for a copy first – if they don’t carry one, then ask a librarian to order a copy for your library!
Austin, Texas families: as of the time of this post, Austin Public Library had at least one copy of each of these books.
