Carly, She’s Still My Daddy by Mary Boenke

Transgender Network of PFLAG, 2004.

Transgender – Preschool/Elementary School

This pamphlet explores the transition of Carl to Carly, from a child’s point of view. Tommy explains his feelings, and his mother’s reactions through the process of Carly’s transition, and notes how much happier his daddy seems to be.

The book explains what it means to be transgender, to have an intersex condition, and also to be a cross-dresser in an age-appropriate way.

Better illustrations would help this title find a place in library collections, but this book serves a real need.
