All I Want to Be is Me is an illustrated children's book that reflects the diverse ways that young children experience and express their gender identity. The book gives voice to the feelings of children who don't fit typical gender stereotypes, and who just want to be free to be themselves. The book also includes children who are fluid in their gender identity, as well as those that feel that their body doesn't match who they really are. It depicts children of different ethnic backgrounds, abilities and family configurations.
