The Gender Fairy by Jo Hirst is a lovely book for children that can be used to start a conversation about being transgender.
This book addresses gender and explains to kids that sometimes the gender that they identify as may not match their sex eg they may be male on the outside (with a penis) but feel like a girl on the inside (or vice versa). The main message is that it is normal for this to happen, that other children can feel this way too, and that they aren’t alone.
The Gender Fairy by Jo Hirst is ideal for children between the ages of 4 – 8 years of age.
