I’m was overly excited that my local library had a children’s/middle-grade Transgender book! We don’t have a very large selection of LGBTQIA books, so finding one in the children’s novels really made my day. I’m doing my best to read at least ten Transgender books this month for Transgender Remembrance Day on the 20th of November. If you have any recommendations, even if it’s not November anymore, let me know! I would love to read them and add them to my next list.
Back to the review, I LOVED THIS BOOK. It was adorable, and in a way completely heartbreaking. I just wanted to hug George. This is a heavy topic to have on your mind when you’re so young and sadly, not many children have accepting parents. I would like to see this book in our schools, as it shows children that they’re not alone and they’re not freaks. I love the play plotline, it was cute. I already have this on my list to have my son read or to even read to him. I think it’s a great place to start if you’re trying to explain Transpeople to young children. Easily a five star from me.
(NOTE: remind yourself this is meant for young children if you read it. It’s not insanely deep but it’s good)
