The Pronoun Book

HarperCollins/Clarion. Mar. 2022. 26p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9780358653158.
PreS-K–A first look at a topic to help even young children navigate social relationships, this board book tackles the topic of confusion around what pronouns people should use. “How do you know what someone wants to be called? Ask.” With a diverse cast, spreads show a pronoun on the left, and people identifying as that particular pronoun on the right. A few of the illustrations are of pronouns that aren’t described, such as, “xe, ze, co.” This is a great starting point for a topic that is getting a lot of notice.
VERDICT A simple book with a simple message. A great purchase for libraries.
