Looking for a way to celebrate and honor Pride Month with your young kid? From books with main characters who are LGBTQ or still figuring out their sexual orientations to stories of straight kids or teens with gay friends or parents, these books portray many aspects of the LGBTQ experience for kids as young as 3. Many of these books have been published within the last few years, a happy indication that more and more families are celebrating diversity in gender and sexual identity.
