Starting a Conversation About Pride
Discussing LGBTQIA+ issues with kids can be a challenge, especially if you don't identify as a part of this community.
Caroline—of our amazing Bringing Books to Life team—showcases some of her favorite books on the subject, reminding us that books are great avenues for opening dialogue with children. And that it's never too early to open a child's heart and mind—to foster empathy and compassion for themselves and for others.
