Resource Description

In this engaging picture book for children, a big sister learns to come to terms with her younger sibling’s gender transition. The colourful story about identity, relationship, and acceptance, leads readers to realize—through the big sister’s eyes and experience—that what is important is the love between the two siblings, regardless of their gender. Suitable for primary students, “Jack (not Jackie)” allows students to reflect on their own ideas of gender. The book can be read independently, but it is well-suited as a read-aloud, allowing for class discussions about gender identity, about being unique, and about dealing with our own emotions.
