This month sees the publication of This Day in June lavishly illustrated by Kristyna Litten published by Magination Press part of the American Psychological Society (APA). Written by Gayle E. Pitman, a professor of psychology. The book aims to enable parents to talk to their children about all aspects of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender(LGBT) community, in a fun and inclusive way, opening doors for children to understand, respect and accept LGBT people from a young age. Village Q posted a great review saying “Litten’s delightful illustrations capture the range of human exuberance, from shirtless leather folk to marching band members to grandstanding politicos in convertibles”
With Gay Pride events going on through out June all over the world it’s great to see this book released and we hope it will encourage teachers, parents and librarians to be more open with kids.
The APA is committed to applying the science and practice of psychology to the fundamental problems of human welfare and the promotion of equitable and just treatment of all segments of society.
