    Rating 45 STARSIntroducing Teddy is a perfect book in my opinion to read to a young child It explains just enough for a child to grasp the understanding of transgender without getting into huge concepts It is also just a lovely story with amazing illustrations

    The “too good to be true” easy vibe of this story is a sweet surprise for me I think it’s important to show challenges and compromises in children’s literature – but sometimes it’s ok to just show complete acceptance too We need both and we also need

    Awesome picture book about a trans teddy bear Really liking all the LGBT and particularly T visibility in kids' lit lately My only ualm since part of the idea here is that we should call people by the names they prefer wouldn't Introducing Tilly make a better title? Similarly I thought the excellent book George would've been better titled Melissa

    I know that gender transitioning is tough but sometimes young children need to know a simple explanation for someone close who has those feelings inside just as Teddy the bear does And just as Teddy the bear finally shares how he feels he asks for change to be called Tilly A couple of small switches like putting the bowtie in her hair makes a simple point too about expectations of others or the outer needs of someone who wants what hasn't been allowed before It's a lovely book written by Jessica Walton because her father transitioned into a woman and she wanted a book to read to her younger son Dougal MacPherson's straightforward illustrations create the expressions and the actions from serious to satisfied to just plain happy just right for little ones to understand too

    At first I didn't like this book because it seemed to oversimplify things But then I remembered this was meant for kids and really for the adults who need to explain a complicated matter to kids I'm glad a conversation can be had if the situation arises

    I get a lot of people asking me for recommendations for trans literature for all ages and I think this is the youngest one I've found A picture book about a boy and his teddy Oh wow am I glad that I picked this up It's a short read of course but it's hugely profound Told in the standard simplified narrative of a picture book for children this story follows the tale of a teddy who is miserable until his companion the boy in the story asks him what's wrong It explores the fear of the teddy that the boy will no longer be friends with him It explores pronouns gender and naming people And just as importantly it explores the no drama ways to respond to this whenever it comes up I particularly liked Ada a friend who builds robots in her spare time who also seemed to have some genderueerness hinted at although this was not explicit Seeing Tilly ending up so happy at the end as she and the boy do the same things as they had at the start only now with the acknowledgement that Tilly is a girl was just wonderful to see

    A copy of this novel was provided by Bloomsbury Australia Allen and Unwin for reviewIntroducing Teddy was in one word gorgeous I also think that everyone should read it so here I have a nifty list just for you detailing all the reasons why Introducing Teddy should be on your TBR1 It’s LGBTIA kid litI am an advocate for LGBTIA lit in YA as most of you probably know but I also know that there is a need for LGBTIA middle grade lit and also kid lit So to see Introducing Teddy being published makes me incredibly happy And hopefully people will give it the love it deserves so that publishers know how important it is to have LGBTIA books in all genres2 It’s trans kid litNot only is Introducing Teddy LGBTIA kid lit which is important in and of itself but it’s trans kid lit Tilly is a transgender teddy bear and the way that this presented is so incredibly lovely3 Errol’s acceptance of TillyNow I didn’t really think that Tilly’s friend Errol would turn around and be horrible to Tilly but it was absolutely gorgeous to see him just completely accept Tilly as she is He says “I don't care if you're a girl teddy or a boy teddy What matters is that you are my friend” And then they just keep playing and hanging out It was sad to see Tilly so afraid of telling Errol how she really felt and it was just amazing to see and feel such emotion from a picture book4 Gender stereotypes are absentNot only is Introducing Teddy about Tilly and her interaction with Errol regarding her being trans but the gender roles of Errol and his friend Ava are not stereotypical in any way Errol likes gardening and having tea parties Ava doesn’t like bows and builds a robot It was so lovely to see this complete and utter lack of gender stereotypes that we see so often in kid lit and other genres as well5 The illustrationsEvery picture in Introducing Teddy is absolutely gorgeous I loved it The fact that every stroke of pencil or whatever was used – I have no idea being completely unartistic myself was visible gave such an authentic feel to the images and the story The mix of messy and smooth was just something I really really liked6 The epilogue pictureThere’s a picture on the very last page of Introducing Teddy and it’s a polaroid like picture of Tilly wearing her bow with her name written underneath This was such an adorable addition to the book and had me smiling so much when I turned the last page and saw it It just reinforced everything that Introducing Teddy had brought forward that Tilly was being herself and accepted and loved by her friendsIntroducing Teddy is an incredibly touching story that will warm every reader’s heart – whether you’re a kid or adult or somewhere in between© 2016 Chiara Books for a Delicate Eternity All rights reservedtrigger warning none
