About

"Q & A with Q & A: Exploring Human Rights and Social Issues" is the first in a series of hard cover picture books and ebooks designed to introduce young children to complex subjects such as:

It will be approximately 42 pages (2-3 times longer than most picture books), with beautiful illustrations, and complex issues pared down to a level that young children can understand.

With this first book in the series, we have made subjects like these easier to explain to young children. We believe that a child is never too young to start addressing hard questions. Future books will discuss climate change, consent, different family types, activism, poverty, etc.

Mock-up of Book Cover
Mock-up of Book Cover

Your young children will enjoy the books because of the colorful pictures but they will prepare you, as a parent, to answer these hard questions when the time comes.

The book features Quinn and Alex, a set of young twins as they explore what is means to be LGBT, why and how men and women are still not treated equally and how race affects how people go through life.

Author Bridget Gaudette & husband Jon (Q & A's parents)
Author Bridget Gaudette & husband Jon (Q & A's parents)

Bridget and Jon have been married for 16 years and have 1 year old boy/girl twins (Quinn & Alex aka Q & A). Bridget has a background in criminal justice, public administration, and nonprofit management. She has also been an activist and advocate for LGBTQ, criminal justice reform, pregnant women with HIV, and church/state separation. She has worked as a Development Director, Marketing Director and Executive Director for various nonprofits. Bridget is also a former blogger. Jon's background is in computer engineering. He is a science and history buff, and always tries to stay current on the social and political climate of both the U.S. and the world. He is a staunch liberal and a lifelong humanist, having participated in multiple rallies and protests over the years.

The fact that Bridget is genderqueer but presents as a woman, black, and born in the Midwest and Jon is cishet, white and born in the Northeast has given them different perspectives on things like privilege, gender issues, etc. all of which were exceedingly helpful when writing this first volume.

 The short answer is "no".

Risks and challenges

We only have one illustrator and creating such beautiful pictures takes time. This is a process that can not be rushed.
