The array of children's books with LGBTQ characters is growing each year, so I want to know: What are your faves?


Perhaps it's A Plan for Pops, which is a lovely story about a boy's relationship with his two grandfathers.

Or maybe it's Mommy, Mama, and Me, which follows a day in the life of a toddler with two moms.

Perhaps it's When Aidan Became a Brother, which is a picture book that tells the story of Aidan, a trans boy who is about to become a big brother.
