The California Department of Education’s Recommended Reading List promotes books for kindergarteners on student transition and for high schoolers on students kneeling during the national anthem.
The recommended reading list is housed in the “teaching and instructional resources” section of the California Department of Education website, suggesting dozens of books for every age group.
“Call Me Max,” a book listed as appropriate for K-2 grades, is about a student who “let his teacher know he wants to be called by a boy’s name.”
In the book, narrated by Max, he raises his hand when his teacher called him on the first day of school. “I wondered if she thought my name had no meaning to me. I felt that way too,” the book reads.

It also describes Max deciding which bathroom to use. “When I went to the store with my father, I went to the bathroom with him. When I went to the store with my mother, I went to the bathroom with her. But at school, I had to choose which bathroom use, “the book read.
Lisa Disbrow, president of the California chapter of No Left Turn in Education, told Fox News Digital that the author of ‘Call Me Max’ “writes to influence the minds and hearts of the children that it is possible to being trapped in the wrong physical body because your feelings tell you that you are trapped.”
“This belief has won political support from groups controlling every aspect of California education, from day care centers to preschools, elementary schools, college and university education, even though every organ and bone in a person’s body will identify forever her sex at birth,” she said. said.
The description of the book “Calvin” says that “Calvin has always been a boy, even though the world sees him as a girl”.
“It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity,” also for K-2 students, is “an in-depth and assertive look at gender identity [which] explores identities across the spectrum while featuring diverse children.”

“Your gender identity may be what people thought you were when you were born, or it may not be,” the book reads. It tells the story of Alex, who is “both a boy and a girl”.
“When Alex was born, everyone thought Alex was a girl, but Alex is both boy and girl. That’s Alex’s gender identity,” the book reads.

“There is no book about children in gender transition that a school can recommend for kindergartners,” said Erika Sanzi, director of education for Parents Defending Education. “The Ministry of Education should be much more concerned with reading, maths and civics than with the gender ideology it conveys to students, often behind the backs of parents.”
For middle schoolers, the main character of the book ‘Rick’ struggles with his own identity, after being “uncomfortable with his father’s jokes about girls and his best friend’s explicit talk about sex”.
The book’s description states that Rick discovers that his identity “may simply be to withdraw from sex altogether”.
For high schoolers, the reading guide recommends the book “Stay Gold,” with two main characters, one named Pony who “hides her transgender identity” and Georgia, “a cisgender cheerleader who counts the days until until she graduates.”
The book “Why We Fly” is about two girls from a cheerleading squad who stage a protest during the national anthem. The authors of the book said they were inspired by Colin Kaepernick kneeling to protest racial injustice.
