Muley Reads: When Aidan Became a Brother

With so many species of animals, the MuleyVerse has always been inclusive and appreciative of people because of their individualities and differences, the things that make them special! Mules, dogs, ducks, horses, donkeys, and cows - all friends!

This sweet #ownvoices picture book by Kyle Lukoff, almost autobiographical, celebrates the changes in a transgender boy's life, from his initial coming-out to becoming a big brother.

Muley Reads is a series of videos starring Muley the Mule reading some of his favorite books - and we hope some of yours - wishing to inspire a love of reading, learning, imagining, and creation in children of all ages! And, as always, we love the books that communicate about people, animals, environment, love, and friendship. Some of Muley's special friends may even pop in to request a book. Music is Crazy Chicken by David Fesliyan. "Reading is fundamental!" Books add the fun, Muley adds "da mental!" Grab your family together, grab a snack or two, and sit back to relax while Muley Reads!!
