Susan loves her baby sister, Jackie, but as Jackie grows older and behaves more and more like a boy Susan must adjust to having a brother, Jack, instead.

Simon and Schuster
In this heartwarming picture book, a big sister realizes that her little sister, Jackie, doesn't like dresses or fairies-she likes ties and bugs! Will she and her family be able to accept that Jackie identifies more as "Jack"?

Susan thinks her little sister Jackie has the best giggle! She can't wait for Jackie to get older so they can do all sorts of things like play forest fairies and be explorers together. But as Jackie grows, she doesn't want to play those games. She wants to play with mud and be a super bug! Jackie also doesn't like dresses or her long hair, and she would rather be called Jack.

Readers will love this sweet story about change and acceptance. This book is published in partnership with GLAAD to accelerate LGBTQ inclusivity and acceptance.

Wonderful book about the transitions a young child makes from female to male. Taking place in the mind-frame of the older sister, this story demonstrates how things to some people may seem 'wrong' but is just 'different'. Erica Silverman doesn't make it all sunshine and rainbows, working through the sister's emotions she feels as she watches her dreams of her little sister being a tutu-wearing fairy to a mud splashing superbug brother. Beautifully told and honest.
