The Island School stands in solidarity with all our friends and families celebrating Pride this month. “Pride Month is a time to celebrate the 2SLGBTQ+ community and honor the progress made in the fight for equality. It’s also a time for community healing and self-care,” says the Rainbow Alliance and Inclusion Network.

Here’s a helpful children’s book list from Island School librarian Kari to spark conversations at home:

  • Stella Brings the Family by Miriam Schiffer
  • Julian is a Mermaid by Jessica Love
  • Our Subway Baby by Peter Mercurio
  • And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson
  • When Aidan Became a Brother by Kyle Lukoff
  • My Shadow is Purple by Scott Stuart
  • Pride: the story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag by Rob Sanders
  • I am Jazz by Jessica Herthel
