One of our greatest tasks as parents is raising children who learn how to love themselves and others well. In honor of Pride Month, we complied a list of 10 LGBTQ+ titles to add to your child’s bookshelf.
Reading these books together as a family is one way to teach your children the important values of kindness, compassion and inclusivity.
