4.0 out of 5 stars Learning tool about gender diversity Feb. 10 2011
By David N. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
This is a delightful little book about Nick; a young child assigned a male gender at birth who sees himself as a girl. His parents tell him they love him anyway he feels. At school he wants to play with the girls, and creates a self-portrait that shows him as a girl. When he tells his parents that the teacher didn't understand, his parents made a point to go to his school and explain. They also work with a gender counselor to help their whole family deal with Nick's need to be a girl.
This book exemplifies how a family and a school should work with a transgender - or potentially transgender - child. Unfortunately, many families and many schools are frightened by a transgender child's self-knowledge and try to force the child into their assigned gender, often with seriously deleterious results.
Be Who You Are is listed on Amazon.com for ages 9 - 12. Nick appears to be younger than that, and I think this story is quite suitable for much younger children even if you must read it to them. I would even like to see it as a coloring book for the kindergarten and grammar school age kids that could be used as a teaching tool about gender diversity.

This book was the "go to" source for us to give to our friends to help explain our transgender child to their children. We have 4 copies of this book floating around to various people. When we're done, we will be giving at least 3 of these books to our local libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, clear message that includes siblings Sept. 16 2013

This book helped my 7 and 9 year olds better understand themselves and each other, because one of my sons, like Nick, "feels like a girl inside." I love that Nick has supportive parents who tell him how much they love him, and whom Nick can turn to for support. When Nick's teacher scolds him for drawing a girl as his self portrait, his parents talk to the school, and afterwards the teacher is supportive. When Nick becomes Hope, Nick's little brother tells Hope that he misses his brother and worries that she doesn't love him now that she's a girl. Hope explains that she's always felt like a girl--that this isn't new--and that of course she still loves him. Both my children were visibly relieved after I read them this book, and they immediately started a meaningful conversation about how they both feel about themselves and each other (no, that doesn't happen every day!). Being transgender is something most adults don't even understand, but this book makes it clear and simple: some people are born in the wrong body, it's not their fault, and they deserve to have those around them love and support them.

5.0 out of 5 stars She was thrilled June 26 2013

I bought this book for my 8 yr old transgender Granddaughter. She was so happy to get it she said, smiling, "She is just like me." it is important for a trans-child to feel that they are not alone. This book certainly helps. The story is clear and easy to understand for a child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well thought out. Sept. 15 2013
By Lisa Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
I just finished reading this to my four-year-old and seven-year-old. It was very easy to understand and helped them to better understand their newly-transgendered cousin. I think the book explains transgender in children to children in a meaningful way. The book helped them to process this concept and made it easier to ask questions about the character in the story than it was to ask questions about their cousin. I would definitely recommend this book to family and friends who need to better understand a trans-gender person in their life.
