    One thought on “M is for Mustache”

    1. So, this is an alphabet book based on the Toronto Pride parade could this be anything but awesome! Some of my favourite letters: "Q is for Queerspawn, for kids as lucky as me to have parents who are lesbian or gay or bi or trans or queer or two-spirit""K is for Kissing. On Pride day it feels safe for all of us to kiss our sweethearts!"R, of course, is for rainbow. Someone else mentioned that the S is for smudging, "we burn sage to remember that we're marching on Native land" is potentially probl [...]

    2. This is the best alphabet book anyone has ever written in the history of all alphabet books. Please, for the love of all that is good and fabulous in the world, teach your children the alphabet with this book.

    3. I enjoyed this book a lot -- but I hesitate at the "S is for Smudging. We burn sage to remember that we're marching on Native land." Smudging is a Native American practice, so it feels culturally appropriative to me for non-Natives to do it :/Absent that page, I would whole-heartedly recommend this book. The Filipina protagonist with her posse of aunties, including folks in dresses AND beards; shout-out to Marsha P.

    4. This alphabet book is about getting ready for a Pride celebration. We start with A is for ally and progress to other letters that introduce concepts like chosen family, gender non-conformity, and queerspawn. There's even a mention of the legendary transgender activist Marsha P. Johnson. I loved how inclusive this picture book is in terms of race, ability ("H is for hands which we use to sign our happiness"), family formation, and more. As other reviewers have mentioned there is a concern that S [...]

    5. Challenges gender bias without becoming preachy or political. A Great addition to our picture book collection. Love the diversity of the characters in illustrations too!

    6. I don't expect much from Alphabet books. X's and Z's are usually disappointing. The book moved me beyond reason. I was flushed with feelings, moved to tears by the tender words, and caring thoughts. All children should be able to see themselves in a book. Especially the two spirit ones. Don't stop here, though. Read all eight books from this publisher.
