Small children are often asked to choose between a gendered binary – ‘boy’ or ‘girl’, ‘pink’ or ‘blue’. This colourful picture book smashes these stereotypes and encourages the reader to follow their own way!
“Girl or Boy?”
What brings you joy?
“Pink or blue?”
It’s up to you.
With vibrant illustrations and concise, poetic text, this powerful book teaches young children that there are no limits in what you can do and who you can be. You are unique! Translated from the original Portuguese by award-winning transgender poet Jay Hulme, My Own Way is an important, timely and beautiful celebration of identity, difference, and respect.
