In this heartwarming picture book, a big sister realizes that her little sister, Jackie, doesn’t like dresses or fairies-she likes ties and bugs! Will she and her family be able to accept that Jackie identifies more as “Jack”?
Susan thinks her little sister Jackie has the best giggle! She can’t wait for Jackie to get older so they can do all sorts of things like play forest fairies and be explorers together. But as Jackie grows, she doesn’t want to play those games. She wants to play with mud and be a super bug! Jackie also doesn’t like dresses or her long hair, and she would rather be called Jack.
Readers will love this sweet story about change and acceptance. This book is published in partnership with GLAAD to accelerate LGBTQ inclusivity and acceptance.
“What a charming, empathetic book whose time has come. A delightful story on a hard topic about accepting all of us for who we know we are. Susan is so excited to have a little sister to play with and although her little sister is more comfortable as a little brother; the quality of the sibling love doesn’t change. The illustrations are magical and this book is a perfect way to teach us all about the need to accept everyone on their own terms.”
“A lovely, heartwarming message of acceptance and love that’s so important for transgender kids, their communities and families. My heart bubbles 🙂 Story features a trans boy, like my son. Lovely illustrations! Bought this for my family and my kid’s schools.”
