She's My Dad!: A Story for Children Who Have a Transgender Parent or Relative
A Story for Children Who Have a Transgender Parent or Relative
"'My Dad's name is Haley. She used to be a he but now she is a she! Last year she did this thing called transition. She grew her hair long, painted her nails in bright colours and started wearing different clothes.'
When Mini's cousin accidently misgenders her dad Haley, Mini explains why misgendering is hurtful and why we need to treat trans people with respect. Mini speaks with confidence about transitioning and gender identity, and empowers others with trans relatives or friends.
This brightly illustrated book will open up discussion for people wanting to educate their children about a loved one transitioning or just about trans people in general. Featuring a child with a dad who has transitioned, this book passes on an important message about acceptance and respect, and covers pronouns, dysphoria, family diversity and misgendering"--

When I transitioned a decade ago, there was nothing like this for our children. She's my Dad, provides children with a gentle story to assuage their worries about what it means when a parent transitions while emphasizing their parents unconditional love through it all. I wish something like this had been available for our children in 2011 when we told them I was transitioning.--Brynn Tannehill, Author of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Trans* (*But Were Afraid to Ask)
She's My Dad is much needed ... a book that manages to be both explanatory and upbeat.-- "Mombian"
A sweet, gentle book that doesn't make being transgender a big deal at all. It's presented as a part of every day life and will allow kids to connect to the characters and at the same time learn about different types of families. An wonderful book for people's home collection, schools and libraries.--Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir (Owl), writer and co-director of My Genderation
