“Only you know whether you are a boy or a girl No one can tell you” The Gender Fairy is a simple story about two children who find relief in finally being heard It is a tale of two children who are taking This book is basically an intro to trans identity for kidsIt starts with babies wrapped in pink and blue blankets and placed in cots labelled girl and boy respectively People bring them stereotypically gendered gifts but as the kids grow up they don't like all of their giftsThe book is careful but not awkwardly so to not gender the kids though it does consistently make the connection between the assumptions the adults are making and the cots the children were placed in as infants which felt to me like a very smart way to convey how this works to kidsThen we get to The child who had been placed in the cot labeled ' girl' was very very angry He felt that no one could see who he really was inside He shouted at the sky 'Why does everyone call me a girl?'

Read The Gender Fairy

Up The Gender Fairy is designed to be read aloud in the classroom or at home It includes notes for parents and teachers to aid discussion and learning completed in collaboration with Roz Ward La Trobe Universi I have read every children’s book about trans children that I’ve heard of and The Gender Fairy has been my favourite The Gender Fairy tells the story about two children learning about gender in a beautiful book with classical illustrations that I think children will really respond to It deals with the issues of gender and transgender young children broadly enough that I would read it to any young child not just a child who I thought might directly relate to the particular gender identity issues raised This doesn’t feel like an “issues book” the kind that’s written with medical jargon thrown in illustrated poorly and has a long list of resources at the back It mostly feels like an interesting story While this book would be great to read to or with child I think its greatest audience is going to be with trans children What delights me is that this book is written in a very non threatening way as are the Parents and Educators notes I think that will make a huge difference in terms of making this book shareable with parents educators and other adults who are struggling to accept a trans child I would absolutely recommend anyone who works with children to get a copy of this book to have in their toolkit Author Jo Hirst intends to write a second children’s book covering non binary genders Non binary genders aren’t a focus in The Gender Fairy however it is absolutely a book that looks at the gender binary and gender stereotypes through a critical eye The concept of non binary genders is also clearly identified in the story and in the Parents’ Notes
