Description of this Book

Tiny's favourite game is fancy dress! Tiny loves to dress up as a pirate, or a doctor, or a fairy. Tiny also prefers not to tell other children whether they are a boy or a girl. Tiny's friends don't mind, but when Tiny starts a new school their new friends can't help asking one question: Tiny, are you a boy or are you a girl? This brightly illustrated book will open a dialogue with children aged 3+ about gender diversity in a fun and creative way. Featuring a gender neutral protagonist, the book imparts an important message about identity and being who you want to be. Tiny's story will assist parents, family and teachers in giving children the space to express themselves fully, explore different identities and have fun at the same time.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review When a child selects a book and sees someone like themselves within its pages, they know they are not alone. It is a seemingly small gesture, to us grownups, that enables a child to feel safe and secure. This breezy and beautifully illustrated book describes gender in playful, innocent terms, allowing children the space to discover themselves and to explore their surroundings joyfully. A must for any library. -- Juno Roche, writer and campaigner
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
