An upcoming children’s book is going to celebrate a transgender biological man.
The book, written by Lisa Bunker, titled “She Persisted: Rachel Levine”, addresses Levine with female pronouns and celebrates the biological man’s achievements.
Levine currently serves as the assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services and the head of the Health Service Commissioned Corps.
The author, Bunker, said after being “inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger” she decided to write “a chapter book series about women who spoke up and rose up against the odds–including Rachel Levine.”
“As the first openly transgender government official to hold an office that requires Senate confirmation, the first openly transgender four-star officer in uniform service, and the first female four-star admiral in the commissioned corps, Rachel Levine faced many obstacles throughout her life,” the description continued.
“But she persisted through them all and showed kids of all genders that they can succeed in their dreams too.”
Bunke described the book to be a “perfect choice for kids who love learning and teachers who want to bring inspiring women into their curriculum,” while also encouraging readers to “follow in Rachel Levine’s footsteps and make a difference!”
One excerpt from the children’s book claims Levine “was born transgender, or trans for short. That means that she was born with a boy body, but on the inside, in her mind and in her heart, she was a girl,” The Blaze reported.
“The first time that Rachel knew for sure that she was a trans girl was when she was five years old,” it adds.
The book’s description also touts an introduction written by the daughter of Hilary Clinton, Chelsea. Children books covering the lives of far-Left figures like Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, and Greta Thunberg have also had the similar “She Persisted” title.
