A gentle story about gender and friendship
One sunny day, Errol finds that Thomas is sad, even when they are playing in their favourite ways. Errol can't figure out why, until Thomas finally tells Errol what the teddy has been afraid to say: In my heart, I've always known that I'm a girl teddy, not a boy teddy. I wish my name was Tilly, not Thomas."Introducing Teddy introduces the youngest readers to understanding gender identity and transition in an accessible and heart-warming story about being true to yourself and being a good friend.
