Product description

Book Description

Introducing Teddy is an accessible and heart-warming story about being yourself and being a good friend, while encouraging the youngest readers to think about gender identity. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"Walton gently explains Tilly's gender, which is a small ripple in the lives of children at play, and subtly pokes at gender roles with Errol's tea parties and Ava's robot building. MacPherson's illustrations are sweet, with a sketchy, contemporary style. . . . This book beautifully changes the narrative of gender and gender roles, but fair warning--the hug scene might bring a tear or two." - starred review, Kirkus Reviews

"The book's spirit of easygoing openness makes it a worthwhile resource. Debut artist MacPherson's ink-and-watercolor illustrations are striking for their emotional immediacy and compositional polish, and he effortlessly moves from the poignancy of the opening pages to breezy good times." - Publishers Weekly

"Walton's matter-of-fact exploration of gender doesn't get into any particulars, focusing instead on the importance of friendship and respect. The final pages, during which Tilly and Errol do exactly the same things they did before, reassure kiddos that changing gender won't change who a person (or bear) fundamentally is ideal for the target audience. A useful resource for adults broaching conversations about transgender issues with little ones." - Booklist
