Children's and Young Adult Literature: LGBTQIA+ Upper Elementary

This guide is a starting place for exploring children's and young adult literature

Upper Elementary LGBTQIA+ Resources

The materials on this page have varying degrees of LGBTQIA+ representation and would generally appeal to students in grades 3-5. The authenticity of LGBTQIA+ representation in these books has not been evaluated by the TDRL staff, and because of this, we highly recommend evaluating individual books for authentic representation before making recommendations to young people.  Click on blue hyperlinks to see availability at the UNLV Teachers Development & Resources Library.
