People often ask, what does it mean to be transgender? The truth is there isn't one answer. Gender is uniquely beautiful, and each person's experience is individual to them. But at its core, it’s all about knowing who you are and having the courage, freedom, and support to live life being your truest self.

The GenderCool series packs an impressive punch. Each Champion brings their honest, sincere, and unfaltering voice to readers in a way that invites us in, envelopes our questions, and welcomes us to walk forward together. Plus, there is some really clever, impactful design going on in these books. The way Gia's story and her recount of isolation is depicted hand-in-hand through words and design left a distinct and memorable impression on me. Beautiful and needed titles.
Loved all three books. Written in a way that when read by parent and child together can easily start a conversation about understanding these topics. After reading, I donated all 3 to my church’s library. Note I didn’t “sneak” them on to the library, I willingly gave them to the minister. I thought the use of trans and non binary characters as narrators in these books was clever and spot on for the audience. Mixed feelings about no illustrations but this allows for more attention to the words
Loved all of the books
This 3-book bundle offers a wonderful way to initially broach the subjects of being transgender, non-binary, and how to be inclusive amongst your peers. They are written with very simple language and would be easy to read and understand - the first page mentions they are best experienced with child and adult. Approximately 5 minutes each. They are, of course, not totally comprehensive, and just a start to the conversation. The books are text only, no pictures. I bought a set so I would be more knowledgeable after recent right-wing criticism. All unwarranted, in my opinion. These books are written by kids, for kids. Highly recommend and so glad I purchased!
Thank you for these remarkable books. They are easy to navigate and help open conversation about our shared humanity.❤️
