Let Me Out celebrates the journey of coming to accept and recognize who we are meant to be. Our fun and interactive pop-up book embraces the messaging of diversity, acceptance, and embracing your truths, especially within the LGBTQ+ community.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH LET ME OUT
Let Me Out follows our main character as they struggle with a major internal secret. This secret manifests as a mysterious entity that hides inside the closet. While the book highlights the fears and concerns many of us have when coming to terms with our identity, it also celebrates the joys of embracing your truth. Once those closet doors are flung open, the story tuns into a pop-up celebration of community and self-acceptance.
How Does Our
Main Character Identify?
The story of coming to terms with who we are is universal. It is for that reason we opted not to assign a specific gender, pronoun or LGBTQ+ identity to our main character. We want it to be open to interpretation so the messaging can benefit all.
What Ages Is
the Book Intended For?
Let Me Out celebrates accepting who you are and encourages you to love whoever you choose to. There is no age limit to this messaging. The story however, does highlight the fears that self-doubt and internal conflict can create. For that reason ages seven and up would be an ideal audience for this book.

Coming out can be such a momentous occasion, that it only seemed fitting to have it literally pop-out of the pages of this book. The messaging is universal, but not always received, so in order to truly resonate with the reader, we wanted to add a new dimension to the story by making it pop-up.
