Kyle Lukoff (@Shekels_Library) is author of A STORYTELLING OF RAVENS and WHEN AIDAN BECAME A BROTHER, the latter of which was our focus in this conversation. WHEN AIDAN BECAME A BROTHER is about a trans boy who wants to make sure everything is just right for the arrival of his new sibling. Aidan considers throughout the story what growing up was like for him, the experience of trying different clothes, different pronouns, of identifying differently now then when he was younger. It’s a beautiful book with the most wonderful illustrations by Kaylani Juanita and it’s one that deserves shelf space in everyone’s library. Thank you to Angie Manfredi, author of the Fat Girl, Reading blog, for connecting us.
