True You: A Gender Journey
There are different ways to show and be who you are in this affirming photographic picture book that offers a celebratory and informative look at kids and their wide-ranging gender identities.
“Sometimes it’s hard when kids say you have to be a boy or a girl when you’re not. Everyone should feel safe to just be who they are.”
Girls, boys, neither, both, or just not sure. Kids are kids! There are different ways to show and be who you are.
It’s up to you—how you feel, how you dress, how you act, how you play, learn, and love.
Who is the true you?
With the permission of their parents, the children in this photographic picture book were recorded and transcribed by authors Gwen Agna and Shelley Rotner as they were photographed. These powerful testimonials paired with a spare narrative and vibrant, joyful portraits offer up a humanizing and moving exploration of kids and how they feel about their true selves.
