Julian Is a Mermaid is simply the ultimate champion of being yourself. I’ve never seen another book that teaches children to be true to themselves as well as this one. It also flies directly in the face of the arbitrary gender norms our kids might have already been exposed to and sets them up for a life of empathy, happiness, and confidence.
Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.
- Claude Monet
