Harvey Fierstein hits it out of the ball park with this fun, colorful, funny, snappy, semi-sarcastic book. I laughed throughout this book. From the opening, I loved, “Elmer was the happiest duckling in the whole forest.” Now, Elmer is a boy duckling who loves doing “girly” things including cheerleading, lots of pink accessorizing, and cooking pretty food, which makes him different from all the boy ducks but he is the happiest. 283 more words

When Kathy is Keith by Wallace Wong

Written by a clinical psychologist, this book is more of a short illustrated manual on childhood transgendered identity than a children’s story.
