The people in this thread are ridiculous. The book I Am Jazz is completely age appropriate. Jeez, the teacher isn't telling kids they HAVE to be transgender. They are just educating the children on different types of people.

Did none of you read books like this as a kid? Books on disabled people, different races, or sexualities? Hell, teachers often read books about child abuse, appropriate touching, and how your body will change growing up. The thing is, they make sure it is age appropriate (which the book the teacher read was).

This has to be an American thing.

Of note, here's the description of the "I am Jazz" book on Amazon (it's below the "read more" under the Laverne Cox quote.)

>From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl's brain in a boy's body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn't feel like herself in boys' clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way.

Incidentally that "girl's brain in a boy's body" line is on the back cover of the book too.

Tell me how that's not profoundly sexist, libfems.

Books: I'm reading She's Not There and my wife has found _Transgender 101_ to be very useful too.

Videos: I liked How do I know if I'm Transgender? and the series from "The Transition Channel" (like with Are You Transgender?) was quite good too.

Personally I really liked this article: Transition Deconstructed as it showed a positive story coming out of a spouse transitioning. I find that there are so few of those, and would really love more resources showing a positive outcome for families!

I'm really looking for resources about how to transition with young children (toddlers) and books to help them understand what's going on. Definitely not sure of how to go with that other than _I Am Jazz_, which is aimed at children a bit older than toddlers.

What else has helped you? Thanks so much for sharing!

I came out when my youngest niece was 5 years old. I gave her a copy of the book I Am Jazz. I have also heard the books Jacob's New Dress and Annie's Plaid Shirt are good.

This pamphlet from PFLAG might be what you’re looking for. Our Trans Loved Ones

I also have some books I actually bought for my kids but I plan to show them to my parents too.

I used this book to explain it to my daughter:

She was 10yrs old last year when we talked about it

I know that in the Trans IRL episode "The Spouses' Take" they all mentioned how they helped explain things to their kids of various ages, the bumps along the way, and books they used to help tell the story. It might not be quite what you're looking for, but adding here in case it is helpful.

I also know that when my spouse first came out to me I went to our local LGBT centre to find out about their support groups. Most probably don't have anything specifically for young kids, but maybe they could help you come up with a solution.

> Onde achou esses supostos livros incentivando trans?

Os mais famosos:

Julian is a Marmaid (inclusive ganhou varios premios)

Jacob's New Dress

I am Jazz (Esse chega a ensinar ate como descrever os sintomas para um medico)

Existem outros que pegam mais no ponto de "aceitacao" e "respeito", que eh legal. Mas como eu disse, todos esses livros tratam trans como algo normal e natural, nao como um disturbio/problema.
