Peanut Goes for the Gold Kindle Edition
Jonathan Van Ness, the star of Netflix’s hit show Queer Eye, brings his signature humor and positivity to his empowering first picture book, inspiring readers of all ages to love being exactly who they are.
Peanut Goes for the Gold is a charming, funny, and heartfelt picture book that follows the adventures of Peanut, a gender nonbinary guinea pig who does everything with their own personal flare.
Peanut just has their own unique way of doing things. Whether it’s cartwheeling during basketball practice or cutting their own hair, this little guinea pig puts their own special twist on life. So when Peanut decides to be a rhythmic gymnast, they come up with a routine that they know is absolutely perfect, because it is absolutely, one hundred percent Peanut.
This upbeat and hilarious picture book, inspired by Jonathan’s own childhood guinea pig, encourages children to not just be themselves—but to boldly and unapologetically love being themselves.
Jonathan Van Ness brings his signature message of warmth, positivity, and self-love to this boldly original picture book that celebrates the joys of being true to yourself and the magic that comes from following your dreams.

Peanut is the most determined little Guinea Pig and they are not about to let anyone stop them from achieving their dream of becoming a rhythmic gymnast. I remember the feeling of being told I can't be a professional wrestler or having people laugh when I shared what it was I wanted to be when I was older, so this gorgeous book has the loveliest message for kids (and grown ups a like). If you were to ask my kids at work what Miss Knott tells them at least once every single day, they will no doubt say "you can be anything you want to be" and "be kind". I don't feel they can ever hear it enough, so I fell in love with this colourful, bold and sweet book. As for the illustrations, they are bright, adorable, cute and magically pop off the page.
Furthermore, I think it's a lovely way of promoting conversations and introducing the term non-binary to little ones and even to yourself. I had heard the term before but had to do some more research on what it meant so I could truly understand it. I loved reading Peanut's story as to see how the correct pronouns were used for Peanut gave me a great example and aided in my understanding, as does watching Jonathan on the show. If you want to learn more, you can read this article: Non-binary Inclusion and of course, do your own research.
'Peanut Goes For Gold' is a positive and uplifting story about believing in yourself and following your dreams. I highly recommend adding it to your bookshelf.
