'A lovely, sensitive, much-needed book that helps all children ask the big questions about identity and gender.' - Juno Dawson, author of This Book is Gay
Tiny loves costumes! Tiny likes to dress up as an animal, or a doctor, or a butterfly. Tiny also prefers not to tell other children whether they are a boy or a girl. Tiny's friends don't mind, but when Tiny starts a new school their new friends can't help asking one question:
"Tiny, are you a boy or are you a girl?"
This brightly illustrated book will open a dialogue with children aged 3+ about gender diversity in a fun and creative way. Featuring a gender neutral protagonist, the book imparts an important message about identity and being who you want to be. Tiny's story will assist parents, family and teachers in giving children the space to express themselves fully, explore different identities and have fun at the same time.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In the book the main character does not identify with being a boy or being a girl. Other characters keep pressing the question, but no answer is ever given. Statements are made about the two genders, i.e. girls cannot be firefighters, and then refuted by the characters. The goal is to get discussion going with children about gender and what it means. The illustrations are colorful and complementary to the text. This book was produced as a means to raise funds for a few groups in the UK that focus on gender identity issues and trans people. I think it's a good resource. http://www.momsradius.com/2017/07/kid-lit-are-you-girl-or-are-you-boy.html
