I Am Everything In Between highlights kids who don’t fit into stereotypical gender ideals. This book celebrates children and how they gender identify by sending a positive message that regardless of biological gender, it’s okay to feel like a girl, it’s okay to feel like a boy, and it’s okay feel like "Everything In Between."
“A simple but powerful message. In a world that often constructs narrow boxes for gender roles and identity, I Am Everything in Between shows kids that it’s okay feel and be who they are. I wish there was a book like this when I was a kid.” ~ LS Stone, author What’s in it for ME?
“This book is a perfect fit for discussions with my Grade 2 class about gender identity. It helped my students understand that expressing how
they feel about their gender is OK and that they belonged.
The artwork is bright and playful. I highly recommend this book.”
~Karen Williams, teacher.
