My Sister, Daisy

by Adria Karlsson
Illustrated by Linus Curci

Daisy’s older brother is thrilled when he gets a new sibling. They are best buddies who do everything together. But in kindergarten, things change. His sibling tells him she is a girl and wants to be called Daisy. Daisy’s brother must adjust to the change—including what it means for him and their relationship. A powerful, moving picture book based on a true story, My Sister, Daisy handles a sensitive subject with warmth and love.

Horn Book Magazine - Kitty Flynn

"In an emotionally honest first-person text, an older brother reflects on how his younger sibling’s gender transition has affected him. . . . Karlsson’s text is purposeful but authentic to a child’s voice, and the story (inspired by her own family’s experience, we learn in an author’s note) should support and guide kids in similar circumstances. With time and parental guidance, the older brother realizes “that you were still the same person, and we could play all the same games.” And that’s what matters most." - Horn Book Magazine
