Marigold Bakes a Cake, written and illustrated by Mike Malbrough

Marigold, the well-groomed and super organized kitty, loves Mondays. Why? Because it’s baking day! However, Marigold’s beloved “no-visitors-it’s-Monday”-alone-time gets interrupted, and organization flies out the window, when something else flies in… Love the illustrations! (Amazon: intended for Preschool – grade 2)

It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity, written by Theresa Thorn & illustrated by Noah Grigni

“There are so many ways to be a boy or a girl – too many to fit in a book! But not everyone feels like either a boy or a girl.” Everyone should be themselves. But sometimes we have to be reminded. Or sometimes others need to be reminded. Theresa Thorn does a great job of reminding us all, “no matter what your gender identity is, you are okay exactly the way you are. And you are loved.” Thorn received a starred review from Kirkus for this awesome book. (Amazon: intended for grades 1-2)
