They Play creates a sense of community and acceptance using powerful statements and engaging visuals that demonstrate differences among us yet highlighting the universal nature of everyone.
Acceptance is the overall theme of They Play, a children’s book for ages 4-6. “They” is used as a pronoun - like “he” or “she" - to help educate young children about the meaning of inclusiveness and acceptance of each other. Whether identifying as she, he or they, everyone is the same yet different. Introducing this concept to young children, without attaching a gender judgment, can help develop an aware and healthy young person who can grow into a strong and sensitive adult. Everyone deserves respect.
