"Welcome to The Pronoun Book! Join Ellie and Casey as they introduce you to the wonderful world of pronouns. Learn about what pronouns are, how they relate to us, and why it's so important to get them right!"
This fun, engaging and empowering children's book is the perfect introduction on pronouns in relation to gender diversity and identity for children aged 5+.Through illustrated scenarios and explanations, it gently encourages children to learn pronoun etiquette and educates them on they/them pronouns, trans and non-binary identities, misgendering and neo-pronouns such as xe, zir and hir.
This illustrated book also includes a dedicated section at the back for adults, which includes a pronoun table, photocopiable pronoun labels and sample letters addressed to schools.
A Note From the Publisher
Provides excellent resources for adults and parents such as letter templates for schools, pronoun templates and photocopiable pronoun labels.

This was a fantastic book and highly educational. Great explanations of pronouns and the difference biological sex and gender. It is written for children and would be easy to understand with guidance but it could also be an easy introduction for adults who need an easy explanation of pronouns and gender identities. There is a lot of information so children would definitely need guidance but the author has planned for that and included great tips and resources, including a pronouns chart (which includes neo-pronouns), a glossary of terms, and sample letters for parents of kids who choose pronouns other than those that align with their assigned gender at birth.
A fantastic, important bite size book about pronouns. This book should be in every classroom in school, it’s an essential read about identities and pronouns.
Thanks to Netgallery for giving me the chance to read this advance copy in exchange for an honest review
This picture book is for EVERYONE! Adults and children alike will learn something new from this fantastic book. Cassandra Corrigan introduces pronouns in a factual manner. Corrigan then explains that gender exists on a continuum. She uses illustrations, definitions, and terms that are easy to understand for folx of every age.
I believe that this book should be required reading in every class (from preschool to high school). This will also be a go-to present for children in my life. This book deserves all of that stars!
This picture book is a wonderful resource for explaining gender and pronouns to small children.I fully recommend it to parents as a way to start this conversation and normalize it in your child's life.
This is a perfect primer on the proper use of pronouns. The illustrations and big letters make this appropriate for all ages--yes, little kids included. It certainly aimed at that audience, but this is an excellent resource for adults who genuinely want to learn more and those adults who keep claiming that they just "don't get all these pronouns.' The book is the length of most picture books and provides additional resources at the back, which include a letter template for teachers and the parents of friends to introduce them to a child's pronouns.
