Follow Ari through their neighborhood as they try to find their
words in this sweet, accessible introduction to gender-inclusive
pronouns that is perfect for readers of all ages.
Whenever Ari's Uncle
Lior comes to visit, they ask Ari one question: "What are your
words?" Some days Ari uses she/her. Other days Ari uses he/him.
But on the day of the neighborhood's big summer bash, Ari doesn't
know what words to use. On the way to the party, Ari and Lior meet
lots of neighbors and learn the words each of them use to describe
themselves, including pronouns like she/her, he/him, they/them,
ey/em, and ze/zir. As Ari tries on different pronouns, they discover
that it's okay to not know your words right away—sometimes you have
to wait for your words to find you.
Filled with bright,
graphic illustrations, this simple and poignant story about finding
yourself is the perfect introduction to gender-inclusive pronouns for
readers of all ages
