I Am Jazz by Jessica Herthel and Jazz Jennings (ages 4-8)

Written with help from public figure and transgender teenager, Jazz Jennings, this gentle and easy to follow storybook explains what it means to be transgender. Jazz explains that she has a “girl brain, but a boy body.” She knew from a young age that she was a girl, even though the world saw her as a boy. It follows her social transition from assigned male to living as a happy female. This book was specifically written for young children with easy to understand language that all kids and adults can use to feel comfortable with a topic that may seem complicated.
