I Don’t Have to Choose

It used to be simple to say who was a boy or who was a girl. But the social climate has changed. Does what you like to do determine your gender? Engaging illustrations help children understand their identity. Kids can relax—this is one choice they don’t have to make!

“This is a delightful medically accurate book that affirms boys and girls as God made them. It is an excellent tool for parents who want to protect their young children from transgender activism.”
– Michelle Cretella, M.D., Executive Director, American College of Pediatrics

The Rainbow’s Not Flat

After the Great Flood, all the animals got off Noah’s Ark two by two. But what are those color curves in the sky? Who put them there? Why? And why are the children merry?

GOD painted his bow so the colors would flow
in an arch from the ground going up and around.

DIOS pintó su arco paraque los colores fluyeran
en un arco desde el suelo subiendo y girando.

This book includes parallel translation in Spanish.

The Roadrunner and the Rattlesnake

Humorous poems for all ages—kids, teens, and adults. Most are simply silly poems to make you grin. All end with a zinger—a surprise twist. But a few of the poems have a stinger, a twist that may replace that grin on your face with a cocked eyebrow or even a scowl. Why? Because kids today are faced with serious issues.

“Whimsical wisdom in poetry for young kids, youths, and adults in a somewhat Shel Silverstein style.”
-David J. Glass, Ed.D., Educator and Author

Choosing

High school freshman Tracy McKenzie thinks her biggest dilemma is figuring out if Charlie is still her best friend—until her little brother comes home and says Jason, a boy in his second-grade class, is now Jessica.

Wait—you can choose your gender? What does it mean to transition? Is that even possible? And what’s going on with the M’s? What’s the deal with SOGI anyway, and is it catching?

“Most parents are unaware of what goes on at school. An edge-of-your-seat read.”
– Jorge Tovar, Senior Pastor, Jordan River Church in Laredo, Texas

In Israel or Palestine?

– Dr. Susan M. Michael, USA Director, International Christian Embassy Jerusalem

REVIEWS

 Dr. Andre Von Mol, a physician, from the Christian Medical and Dental Associations, writes a review of I Don’t Have to Choose for the Christian Medical and Dental Associations blog.

In The Activist Mommy, Elizabeth Johnston writes a great review for I Don’t Have to Choose.

Dr. Jennifer Robach Morse, founder of The Ruth Institute, writes a review for I Don’t Have to Choose in Dr. J’s Blog.

Right Wing Watch is a leftist progressive advocacy group that states its purpose is to expose and challenge the Christian right agenda. In 2017, Right Wing Watch checked out the exhibits at the conservative Family Research Center’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., and spotted I DON’T HAVE TO CHOOSE, a book for young children which they apparently felt was so obviously outrageous that they could post a review with no further comment necessary.

Ellie Klipp writes about How to Talk with Your Child About GENDER in the cover article for Fusion Family Magazine, Fall 2020 (pages 10-13)
