Playing off “The Wheels on the Bus,” this nursery rhyme book from a founder of Drag Queen Story Hour is a fun, freewheeling celebration of being your most fabulous self.

The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish encourages readers to boldly be exactly who they are. Written by a founding member of the nationally recognized Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH), this playful picture book offers a quirky twist on a classic nursery rhyme by illustrating all of the ways to “work it”. The story plays off “The Wheels on the Bus” as it follows a drag queen who performs her routine in front of an awestruck audience. A fun frenzy of fierceness, this book will appeal to readers of all ages.

This is a delightful book that parents who want to expose their kids to a wide variety of cultural experiences will absolutely love. This vibrant and colorful picture book is a perfect introduction to the world of drag queens and the LGBTQ+ community, helping children to understand and celebrate diversity.

At its heart, “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish” is a fun and engaging story that children will love. The book is written in a rhythmic, sing-song style that is easy for kids to follow along with and repeat, making it perfect for reading aloud. Each page features a different drag queen and showcases their unique style and personality. The illustrations are bold and bright, with lots of glitter and sparkle, capturing the joy and exuberance of the drag scene.

But beyond the fun and colorful exterior, “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish” also has a powerful message of acceptance and inclusivity. By introducing children to drag queens and the LGBTQ+ community, the book encourages them to embrace diversity and celebrate differences.

One of the things I love about this book is how it celebrates the art of drag and the creativity and talent of the drag queens featured. Lil Miss Hot Mess, the author of the book, is herself a drag queen and children’s book author. Her passion for the art form shines through on every page. By showcasing the amazing costumes, makeup, and performances of the drag queens, the book encourages children to appreciate the artistry and skill that goes into drag.

I would highly recommend “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish” to parents who want to expose their kids to a wide variety of cultural experiences. Not only is it a fun and engaging story that children will love, but it also has an important message of acceptance and inclusivity. By introducing children to drag queens and the LGBTQ+ community, the book helps to promote understanding and empathy, making it an essential addition to any family’s bookshelf.
