There’s a enjoyable e book accessible for teenagers written by one of many founding members of Drag Queen Story Hour and taking part in off “The Wheels on the Bus,” and also you’re gonna wish to purchase it on your kiddos as quickly as potential.
According to the e book’s description, “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish,” is a “fun, freewheeling celebration of being your most fabulous self,” which “encourages readers to boldly be exactly who they are. This playful picture book offers a quirky twist on a classic nursery rhyme by illustrating all of the ways to “work it.” The story follows a drag queen who performs her routine “in front of an awestruck audience. A fun frenzy of fierceness, this book will appeal to readers of all ages.”⠀⠀⠀⠀
Author Lil Miss Hot Mess was among the many first Drag Queen Story Hour members, and, in keeping with Family Equity, serves on its world management crew. She’s been internet hosting readings of her e book at ICA LA, RuPaul’s Drag Con, Vice Media, and different colleges and venues throughout the nation.
According to the evaluations on Amazon, it’s already a winner. “This book’s gonna werk, werk, werk all through Pride Month and beyond. Drag persona Lil Miss Hot Mess rewrites ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ to create a fun, movement-filled, family-friendly celebration of drag. . . . Appropriately psychedelic. . . . Fun, fun, fun all through the town!”Kirkus Reviews wrote.
In an interview with Family Equity, Lil Miss Hot Mess mentioned the aim of the e book was so “kids and families to be able to experience some of that joy and magic at home,” the identical manner they do throughout Drag Queen Story Hour. “The book is based on a song I’d been singing with kids at story hours, and I love that it doesn’t just teach kids the basics about drag, but it really gets them to try it out a bit by feeling that creativity, self-expression, and fabulousness in their bodies!”
The writer has been sharing some significantly lovely posts of her phrase child out on the planet being loved by households. “In honor of my book’s first birthday, I’m posting photos of kids and families enjoying it in all their fabulousity! Truly nothing makes me happier than to see these out in the world!!!”
Of bringing LBGTQ+ tales to households, she mentioned: “I always say that drag performers (and LGBTQ+ people more broadly) are part of every community: we’re already in libraries, schools, and community spaces whether we’re sparkling in our sequins or leading quieter lives. And, all kids deserve to learn about the diversity of the world around them, including the contributions of queer/trans people and social movements.”
This is one which must be in each child’s library.
