INSPIRATION FOR ‘JEFFERY’S DRESS’

I was inspired to write this story as a way of breaking down the gender stereotypes that society often creates for young children. There are many ways to be a boy and many ways to be a girl. It is important that children feel comfortable and accepted in being who they are, and how they are. The non-judgemental love and support of the father in the story is an example of how adults can help children to feel secure to express who they are.
