A children’s book that critiques the teaching of transgenderism in schools and children's libraries will not appear on Amazon, with its author saying the company has a "track record of not being kind to conservative publishers."
Ashley St. Clair's book Elephants Are Not Birds is the story of an elephant named Kevin who enjoys singing. Because of his singing, a vulture called "Culture" convinces Kevin he must be a bird.
"Surely, oh surely, you must be a bird," Culture tells Kevin. "It's only your feelings that show what is real."
He gives the little elephant everything to become a bird, but despite receiving a beak and wings, Kevin cannot live his life well trying to be a bird.
"I am an ELEPHANT; that's plain to see. From this point on, I'll enjoy being me," Kevin says after learning his lesson.
The title is the first from BRAVE Books, a publishing company that aims to bring "American Values that Endure into the hearts and minds of children and their families," according to its website.

Stories and games are some of the best ways to discuss confusing topics to children, said Brave Books chief of staff Zach Bell.
"Our aim at BRAVE Books, is to not just provide a book, but to provide an experience for the whole family that will bring them closer together," Bell told the Washington Examiner.
Those on the Left have not responded well to St. Clair's work. Across the internet, critics have attacked the book, calling it "hate speech" and "Beyond Vile."
St. Clair's work is available on the BRAVE Books website.

St. Clair was not interested in working with Amazon to distribute her book, she told the Washington Examiner.
"Nope, we don't want it there," she said. "They have a track record of not being kind to conservative publishers."
Elizabeth Johnston will write a pro-life story, and the Hodge Twins, YouTube stars and conservative pundits, will author a work on critical race theory, St. Clair said.
