Gender Confusion Literature: Book Read Aloud at Anchorage Library Tells Kids How Girls Can Be Boys
A book on display in the children’s library at Loussac Library in Anchorage supports the agenda of gender confusion currently being pushed by the far left.
“Jack (not Jackie)” is the story of a little girl who loves bugs, not fairy tales, and therefore wants to be “Jack”.
In this heartwarming picture book, a big sister realizes that her little sister, Jackie, doesn’t like dresses or fairies – she loves ties and bugs! Will she and her family be able to accept that Jackie identifies more as “Jack”?
“… As Jackie gets older she doesn’t want to play these games.” She wants to play with mud and be a great bug! Jackie also doesn’t like dresses or her long hair, and she would rather be called Jack, ”says the Amazon reviewer, who notes that“ readers will love this sweet story about change and acceptance. This book is published in partnership with GLAAD to accelerate inclusion and acceptance of LGBTQ people.
The book is also listed as a quality children’s book by the Feminist Children’s Books website, which contains a list of “15 trans, non-binary children’s books”.
The book is graded Kindergarten to Grade 3 by a review in School Library Journal, who writes: “Told in clear prose without any hint of sentimentality, this timely picture book approaches gender identity in a way that enables children to understand the differences on the outside while also remembering what account inside. Vividly illustrated pages with artful detail will capture the audience’s attention and invite to better appreciate their mute support of the storytelling. The author includes a note on the back as well as an appendix of additional resources including books, articles, online resources, and picture books on the topic of children’s gender identity. VERDICT A must have addition to any collection that seeks to offer more inclusive resources.
