Julian is a Mermaid is a RF picture book illustrated and written by Jessica Love. This book has won the Stonewall Book Award. Julian is Mermaid is about a boy and his abuela. Julian wants nothing more than to be a mermaid like the people he saw and his abuela encourages him to dress up as one. This book is incredibly powerful and I would use it as a S in my classroom.
Julian is a mermaid focuses on a latinx family. It represents children that are not traditionally found in mainstreamed children's literature. It makes for an excellent addition to anyones classroom library.
