With a quick note to grown-up readers of this new children’s book that “sex education is about more than science and the so-called facts of life,” celebrated LGBTQ-inclusive authors Cory Silverberg and Fiona Smyth jump right in. Covering topics as diverse as gender identity, crushes, touch, and consent, Sex Is a Funny Word doesn’t pull any punches. This fun, interactive, and lovingly made picture book is worth a read with your kids, or the curious child in you. Triangle Square Books (sevenstories.com/trianglesquare). —Lucy Doyle
