LGBTQIA Picture Books

Last week I posted about Pride Month and gave some recommendations for diverse young adult reads. This week we’re continuing the celebration by looking at some picture books that help bring LGBTQIA representation to our shortest shelves and youngest readers. These books are kind, funny, and heart-warming in turn. They're also really great for story time.
