Want to let your child know you accept gender diversity? This coloring book can help. Sometimes the Spoon is an 8½ x 11 inch coloring book with 24 panels (12 double-sided pages) showing gender variance in many forms–boys liking dolls, girls liking trucks and tools, boys cross-dressing, both genders with same-sex attraction,monsters that like pretty things,etc.
Short sayings in large type accompany each panel, emphasizing what the pictures are intended to say.
Suitable for all children who like to color, it can also be an introduction to books where parents want to encourage their child to accept gender diversity. Children learn at an early age what is socially acceptable, in toys, clothes, and play. This small coloring book can help them understand that liking something different is OK.
