Join Charis Books co-owner, and recently retired City Schools of Decatur Pre-K teacher, Ms. Angela Gabriel, for a weekly story time every Friday at 12pm in June in honor of Pride Month!

Ms. Angela will read books celebrating LGBTQ Families and Kids, gender creative and trans kids, and some new takes on some old tales! 

This event is free and open to children and adults of all ages, but is probably best enjoyed by children ages 2-7. 

Join us by tuning into our Charis Books and More Facebook Page on Fridays at noon. You don't have to have a Facebook page to watch.

This sweet #ownvoices picture book celebrates the changes in a transgender boy's life, from his initial coming-out to becoming a big brother.

When Aidan was born, everyone thought he was a girl. His parents gave him a pretty name, his room looked like a girl's room, and he wore clothes that other girls liked wearing.

Most mommies are girls. Most daddies are boys. But lots of parents are neither a boy nor a girl. Like my Maddy.

My Maddy has hazel eyes which are not brown or green. And my Maddy likes sporks because they are not quite a spoon or a fork.

Some of the best things in the world are not one thing or the other. They are something in between and entirely their own.
