Pronouns matter because everyone deserves to identify themselves the way they want to be known by the world!

Pronouns are a meaningful part of identifying who we are. We can’t know someone’s pronouns just by looking at them or knowing their name, so it’s important to ask! This book encourages kids AND grownups to get uncomfortable, learn new things, make mistakes, and choose to keep growing. It’s not about always getting it right—it’s about being loving and continuous in our effort.

Dr. Courtney Wells (they/them) and Lee Wells (she/her) are queer, married Chicagoans committed to justice and inclusivity for their and all kids. Courtney is an award-winning trauma psychologist with a super cool TEDx talk on dismantling the gender binary. Lee is a therapist working with LGBTQ+ kids and families and co-founder of Mind Chicago.

My kids and I love this book!

A Kid's Book about Pronouns is an easy to comprehend book for all ages. This book highlights how important the words we use to tell the world who we are can be. I believe two major themes that come up for readers are self advocacy, and healthy self-expression - as pronouns are one simple way for people to express who they are. My favorite part of the book is where it mentions how effort is so valued, and that mistakes happen. Another one of the best parts of the book is where it mentions how we wouldn't guess someone's name just by looking at them, and how pronouns are the same way! I highly recommend adding this book to your library!


I absolutely ADORE this book! The writing really feels so personal and relatable, like you’re really having a conversation! The author does a wonderful job of using kid language to make this idea- that so many grownups struggle with how to explain or comprehend- into something so simple and obvious!! A must read for the little one in your life 🩵

The book encourages open dialogue and fosters an environment where children can ask questions and learn about pronouns without fear or prejudice. Highly recommend!

Must read

This book is an absolute must read. I just read it with my 5yo, and he understood the concept right away. He was able to relate different pronouns to people we know and is already thinking beyond the gender binary. A good reminder that any difficulty with understanding gender and pronouns is an adult issue, not a child one. Can you write An Adult Book About Pronouns? 🤣
