I Promise

2:40 PM - 3:00 PM

I Promise

This sweet and gentle book, featuring tender-hearted illustrations, captures the honest and intimate moments of queer parenting in all their messy glory—from building pillow forts and checking under the bed for monsters to kissing boo-boos and cuddling after a long day. It also affirms that families come in many shapes, sizes, and colours, and that every queer family starts with the sacred promise to love a child. (Arsenal Pulp)
