If you’re a drag queen and you know it, let it show by winking, shaking your bum, laughing real big, twirling around, and more! Join a cast of fabulous drag queens as you sing along to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It” in this playful celebration of expressing your brightest and boldest self.


Bright colours, fabulous outfits, and lots of silly actions — what more could you want from Drag Queen Story Hour? My inner kween was let loose with this bopping good time of a story. Blow a kiss, twirl around, lip sync away! I was living my RuPaul best fantasy life as I read through If You’re a Drag Queen and You Know It with my little guy today. This book is full of fun and bright illustrations and a positive message about loving yourself and living your truth to the absolute fullest.

The images and the song are engaging for both kids and parents. I’d love to get dressed up and really rock out to the pages of this book. It’s joyful, playful, and send a beautiful message about being yourself and loving who you are. Embrace your fun and creative side, and sing and dance along!

Four stars out of five because some of the rhymes were a little clunky, so the song didn’t always flow smoothly, but still a ton of fun to go through with the LO!

Happy reading!
