We NEED 200 more people to pre-order a set of our new 2019 books (theme: Discovery!) and support us in building a just, loving, inclusive future for all humans. We need queer and trans kids to feel affirmed, loved, and valid. We need the cis and straight kids who will experience these books to see and enjoy celebratory images and stories of our families so they don’t grow up to do violence against those queer and trans kids. We need all the kids who get bullied and harassed for being “different” to see themselves in the kind and brilliant light of our authors and illustrators, beautiful and perfect. We need to turn the grief of invisibility into the love of celebration. The time is now. We can't make the books this world needs without you. We have ONE WEEK to find these customers or the books don’t get made.
I know you know these people. They're our straight allies, our affirming medical providers, our friends from college, our siblings-in-law, the parents of the children we're wild aunties and sparkly uncles to. Please, join us now. Please take a moment and email five friends: tell them about us. Tell them how your kids, siblings, students, grandkids feel when they read our books. Tell them what it would mean to YOU to live in a world where children could grow up feeling seen, and loved, and free.
