5 Children’s Books with a Transgender Theme

From 12th to 19th November it’s Transgender Awareness Week and with some governments pushing back against the trans movement and trying to lock down gender in laws, it’s never been so important to be a trans ally!

With that in mine, we’re suggesting some books for children today, all with a transgender theme. These books are designed to help understanding, in a kind and simple way and all come highly recommended.
