Be Yourself Picture Books!

The Umbrella Queen by Shirin Yim Bridges, illustrated by Taeeun Yoo

Bow-Wow-Meow by Blanca Lacasa, illustrated by Gomez

Fabio the dog doesn’t like doing what other dogs do. He’s much more of a cat person. And that’s perfectly ok with his human family. This can be used in the context for explaining non-binary gender to kids. [picture book, ages 4 and up]

Little Wolf’s First Howling by Laura McGee Kvasnosky and Kate Harvey McGee

Little Wolf’s dad tries to teach Little Wolf how to howl properly but his idea of howling is inspired by jazz. [picture book, ages 4 and up][

Jeni So Many by Teja Arboleda, illustrated by Zoe Piel

This is a story of Jeni, who has many different kinds of animal parts, in support of multiracial, multiethnic and multicultural families be they adopted or blended. [picture book, ages 4 and up]

Fuchsia Fierce by Christianne Jones, illustrated by Kelly Canby

Although her parents named her Fuchsia Fierce, she’s actually shy and timid and scared to try anything new. Her parents send her to Camp Confidence, and at first, she avoids the activities. On game night, after being bored by sitting out, Fuchsia decides to go for it. She learns that while she might not be the best at everything she tries, it’s awesome to try new things. This is a great picture book for being your best self. [picture book, ages 4 and up]

T. Veg: The Story of a Carrot-Crunching Dinosaur by Smriti Prasadam-Halls, illustrated by Katherina Manolessou

Reginald the T-Rex is mighty but he prefers a vegetarian diet. When the other dinosaurs make him feel that he doesn’t belong, he shows them that he isn’t weak but unique. [rhyming picture book, ages 4 and up]

Me, All Alone, at the End of the World by M. T. Anderson, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes

Being alone doesn’t necessarily mean loneliness for a boy living at the end of the world. When civilization arrives, his world changes, but necessarily for the better. Use this book as an anthem for the self-reliant and, on another level, for protecting the environment. [advanced picture book, ages 6 and up]

  2. Thanks for the share…Me All Alone looks especially interesting.

  3. What a great giveaway, Mia! I’ve only read the Little Wolf book of these titles.
