She’s My Dad!

A Story for Children Who Have a Transgender Parent or Relative

Author

'My Dad's name is Haley. She used to be a he but now she is a she! Last year she did this thing called transition. She grew her hair long, painted her nails in bright colours and started wearing different clothes.'

When Mini's cousin accidentally misgenders her dad Haley, Mini explains why misgendering is hurtful and why we need to treat trans people with respect. Mini speaks with confidence about transitioning and gender identity, and helps to educate and empower others with trans relatives or friends.

This brightly illustrated book for children aged 3 - 7 will aid discussion with children about a loved one transitioning or about trans people in general. Featuring a child with a dad who has transitioned, this book passes on an important message about acceptance and respect, and covers pronouns, dysphoria, family diversity and misgendering.

Press reviews for: She’s My Dad!

Juno Roche, author of Gender Explorers, Queer Sex and Trans Power

A simple story that speaks volumes about the kindness and joy in acceptance. An incredibly useful book for an early years setting.

Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir (Owl), writer and co-director of My Genderation

A sweet, gentle book that doesn't make being transgender a big deal at all. It's presented as a part of every day life and will allow kids to connect to the characters and at the same time learn about different types of families. An wonderful book for people's home collection, schools and libraries.

Dr Elly Barnes MBE, CEO & Founder Educate & Celebrate

Sarah's book gives our young people, teachers and families much needed vocabulary and knowledge to have open and safe conversations about gender identity in 2020 - the perfect resource for schools and libraries!

Brynn Tannehill, Author of "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Trans* (*But Were Afraid to Ask)"

When I transitioned a decade ago, there was nothing like this for our children. "She's my Dad," provides children with a gentle story to assuage their worries about what it means when a parent transitions while emphasizing their parents unconditional love through it all. I wish something like this had been available for our children in 2011 when we told them I was transitioning.

She's My Dad is much needed ... a book that manages to be both explanatory and upbeat.

Gscene Magazine

Presented with fun and with key messages being about friends, cuddles, kittens, family & respect, this is a great book to support children whose parents may have transitioned, or starting off on a journey towards their authentic selves. It's an intergenerational book, with people presented as varied, diverse and accepting as most folk are in real life.
