Overview

An empowering story for gender nonconforming kids or any little one who dares to be different

Travis loves football. But he also loves glitter, dance, and fashion. His classmates belittle him for defying social norms. Will Travis remain confident and brave when others tease him for being different? Travis sets no limits to what he enjoys doing. Shopping and football, ballet and dress-up make Travis a one of a kind boy! But when some of the kids on the playground begin to pick on him, Travis truly dazzles. This empowering story encourages kids of any gender to challenge the social norm, revealing their true selves.

Reviews

"While very highly recommended, especially for family, elementary school, and community library Social Issues picture book collections for children ages 5-7, it should be noted that Dazzling Travis is also available for personal reading lists in a paperback edition and in a digital book format." —Midwest Book Review

"This celebration of living one's best life features the first-person voice of Travis, a boy with a lot of flair: overall, the book succeeds in communicating the message promised in the subtitle." —Andrew Medlar, Booklist Reviewer
