Assigned reading for MLIS 7421: Multicultural Youth Literature.

This was probably the cutest and most delightful children's picture book I've read in a very long time! It tells the true story of Jazz Jennings, a trans girl who knew she was a little girl trapped in a boy's body since she was a toddler. It talks about her family's adjustment period to her transition, her classmates' behaviors towards her - and, most importantly, she touches on the fact that anyone who gives her a chance ends up loving her, and seeing her for the kind and lovely little girl she is. Not only is the story fantastic, but the art is gorgeous, too, and I will absolutely be purchasing a copy of this for my own child!
