Scottish Book Trust: Bookbug book list

Celebrate LGBT History Month with these picture book recommendations from The Scottish Book Trust

Picture books have a huge role to play in helping little ones understand the world in which they are growing up in, and it's hugely important that the LGBT community are reflected in picture books for young children. Here are 11 books which are great for starting conversations with children about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identities.
