Book review

When Kayla Was Kyle

by TYFA parent Amy Fabrikant

Illustrated by Jennifer Levine

TYFA is very pleased to present When Kayla Was Kyle! From their website

Kyle doesn’t understand why the other kids at school call him names. He looks like other boys, but doesn’t feel like them. Can Kyle find the words to share his feelings about his gender – and can his parents help him to transition into the girl he was born to be? When Kayla Was Kyle is a picture book children of all ages will want to read because it addresses the increasingly emerging ideas around Gender Diversity.
