We are proud to feature Paloma Medina, Audrey Ford, and Jessica Kendall-Bar and their new book, Looking for Marla



About Looking for Marla

This book is for educators, parents, youth, and anyone wanting to learn about sex and gender diversity in nature and gender pronouns in a fun way! Looking for Marla tells the tale of a curious clownfish in transition as they find their way through fatherhood and into motherhood! As readers follow along through playful and punny rhymes, they encounter a diverse cast of friendly marine creatures, each with a unique story to tell and a jewel of wisdom.

Looking for Marla hopes to inspire readers of all ages on their own journey of gender expression and self-exploration, while they discover the diversity of parental care strategies in the underwater world.
