"This body, that body, his and her and their body. However YOU define your body! Bodies are cool," the book states.

Drag Story Hour, the organization that has repeatedly come under fire for children’s story hours led by drag queens across the nation, revealed in November that Penguin Random House gave the organization books for the group’s Indigenous Story Hour.

The video, posted to Instagram on Nov. 22, featured text reading: "Penguin Random House gave us books for our Indigenous Drag Story Hour. So many great titles!"

Two books featured in the video were Bodies Are Cool by Tyler Feder and Finding My Dance by Ria Thundercloud.

Bodies Are Cool features artwork showing people of differing sizes and shapes, and displays biological women who have mastectomy scars from top surgery, or the removal of the breasts, and are now wearing masculine clothing and haircuts. 

"This body, that body, his and her and their body. However YOU define your body! Bodies are cool," the book states.

Finding My Dance is about Native American professional dancer Thundercloud’s dance career. 

Penguin Random House, one of the largest publishers in the country, has partnered with Drag Story Hour in the past, announcing in 2019 a partnership with the group to produce a Literary Drag Show.

This show, as part of The Library After Hours: Pride Edition, featured six drag performers doing "readings, lip-syncing, talks, draglesque numbers, and costume-changes into beloved characters such as Little Red Riding Hood, Tinkerbell, and Gandalf."

Penguin Random House described Drag Queen Story Hour as "a pioneering organization that focuses on literacy and acceptance by organizing events at libraries, schools, and bookstores where drag performers read to children. The program prevents bullying and encourages young people to embark on an exploration of self, all while providing an enjoyable literary experience."
