Parents can educate themselves and their young children with this title in the helpful series published under the auspices of the American Psychological Association. Through the setting of a school play, this picture book looks at the subject of chosen pronouns, specifically the use of “they,” in addition to,”he” or “she.” The importance of respecting each child’s choice is the theme.

The class play is about a farm and harvest. The author ties the theme together by showing that farm crops grow just as they are supposed to, as do people. This inclusive message should be an important part of a child’s early learning.

I recommend this book for families and preschools.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
