10 Gender-Bending Children's Books You'll Love

By: Daniel Villarreal

This last week, Lesléa Newman — the woman who also wrote "the first lesbian-themed children's book ever published," Heather Has Two Mommies — gave a talk at the National Conference on LGBT Equality about gender-bending children's books.

During her talk, she read eight different children's books filled with delightful pictures and important messages about the value of being yourself. So we decided to share these books along with some accompanying videos of the books being read aloud so you can enjoy them for yourself.

And if you like them, share them with the young person in your life — because taking pride in yourself is a life skill everyone should learn, no matter your age.
