Stan and Allen

Stan and Allen: A Book About Gender by Huxley Ren Bunn is a story about a non-binary alligator named Stan who loses their umbrella, which is trouble for them since they get sunburnt without it! Their friend Allen joins them and proposes they visit the “Mud Slug” for some lemonade. As they get their drinks and wonder where their umbrella went, they are misgendered by a few friends. Stan takes this opportunity to help educate their friends as well as the audience on the definition of non-binary and what it means to each individual person’s identity.

This story is a great and fun introduction to gender, especially for younger kids, as it covers gender identity and common misconceptions and questions. It clearly defines the words, making them easy for a younger audience to understand and grasp. With the beautifully abstract art style, it is much more captivating and exciting for a child. The colorful, large text and diagrams help the reader to visualize each term and lesson.

The overall storyline is adorable and educational. It really shows how common it is to be misgendered in a person’s day-to-day life. And it can be difficult for some people to know what pronouns to use, so the story emphasizes the importance of not being afraid to ask! In addition, the characters are all different colorful animals, and they’re cute. Overall, the book is a fantastic read, and I highly recommend it for children and even adults!

Stan and Allen: A Book About Gender is a well-crafted children’s book explaining non-binary and different pronouns at an age-appropriate level. The story is delightful and engaging and encourages children to accept themselves and others around them.
