"Vetting LGBTQI Children's Books with Love" Worksheet:
statistics show that the vast majority of LGBTQ+ children's books are not written by an LGBTQ+ person. This means they often include implicit bias and lacked of lived experience. This worksheet is an important tool to develop critical awareness and begin looking at children’s books, (especially nonfiction gender books & workbooks for the young), that support LGBTQI2S+ kids, families, educators and librarians in choosing books that support our community from the inside OUT, taking into consideration truth, power dynamics, suppressed history and first or own voice.
