Free to Be…You and Me by Marlo Thomas

Free to Be…You and Me by Marlo Thomas

35 years ago Marlo Thomas made history with the release of a children’s book that would captivate the hearts and imaginations of young readers around the world. FREE TO BE…YOU AND ME, a collection of stories, songs and poems, became an instant bestseller, inspiring children, parents and teachers everywhere to feel the joy of being their own unique selves.
Marlo and her friends—as well as some new faces—are back with an updated edition, which continues to celebrate human diversity; dispel stereotypes and myths about gender, class and race; and challenge societal expectations that often inhibit kids’ freedoms to be who they want to be. All of the material from the original book appears in this new edition, including the brilliant musings of the late Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., and an introduction from women’s rights pioneer Gloria Steinem. But the look is entirely different—with vibrant, new art, selected by the original creators themselves, that speaks in the visual language of today’s children.

All proceeds from the sale of FREE TO BE…YOU AND ME will go to the Free to Be Foundation, a subsidiary of the Ms. Foundation for Women, which benefits children and families.
