Best Trans-themed Books for Children

The past few years has seen a welcome flood of books depicting transgender and gender-expansive kids and their life experiences. From picture books like I am Jazz, to young adult novels like If I Was Your Girl, positive stories that provide both a window and a mirror into the lives of LGBTQ kids are finally being published by major houses. We’ll offer a list of positive books for teachers to share with students and their families, and also discuss where progress remains to be made.
