Without going into heavier discussions of gender presentation versus identity, this sweet, simple story, translated from Spanish, encourages children to dress as they like without being burdened by societal expectations about gender. Readers don’t get to find out how Leo’s day at school goes, but the love and support of his family may be the most important thing in this case.
