Summary: This book is intended for all parents, grandparents, educators and anyone who has ever loved a child. Growing up is hard under the best of circumstances, but when you don’t feel like you belong in your own skin, the battle is one that lasts 24/7 unless someone intervenes and says…” You’re okay just the way you are and your feelings matter to me.” The first step in understanding the whole issue of gender identity is removing our bias, shutting our mouths, opening our ears and listening to what the child has to say. Jack Wants to Be Jill is a simple story that introduces the transgender subject to younger children in a way that is non-judgmental and compassionate. Everyone deserves to be true to themselves and it needs to start in our own homes.
