Cross-dressing for kiddies may even become fashionable. What a good thing that would be!
I was struck, since I had read our own elp’s post about her son, to see an almost identical story about a mother and son in Seattle. The story includes support from the school. And one result is a book about the family’s experiences with a ‘different’ boy:
The so-far self-published book is forthcoming from Simon and Shuster in December. The web site says:
My Princess Boy is a nonfiction picture book about acceptance. With words and illustrations even the youngest of children can understand, My Princess Boy tells the tale of a 4-year-old boy who happily expresses his authentic** self by wearing dresses and enjoying “traditional girl” things like jewelry, sparkles or anything pink. The book is told from a mother’s point of view, sharing both positive and negative experiences the Princess Boy has with family, friends, classmates and even total strangers.
The book is listed at Amazon as currently unavailable, but there is more about the author-mother here. There is also a separate web site for the book, with links to other forums; you can contact the author if you want.
