An awesome story to explain to children what being transgender means. A great read for a sibling or close loved one of a trans kid, especially. The plot of this book is a big sister witnessing her younger trans brother starting to be himself. It even depicts the process through which the child might reject the idea at first, but then accept it in the end after they begin to understand. Highly recommended for trans kids and siblings of trans kids! Recommended By Rin S., Powells.com
