Annotation

"All I Want To Be Is Me" is a beautifully illustrated children's book reflecting the diverse ways that young children experience and express their gender. The book gives voice to the feelings of children who don't fit into narrow gender stereotypes, and who just want to be free to be themselves. This book is a celebration of all children being who they are, and is a positive reflection of children, wherever they experience themselves on the gender spectrum. "All I Want To Be Is Me" offers a wonderful way for all children to learn about gender diversity, embracing different ways to be, and being a true friend.
