Young schoolchildren are being exposed to a controversial picture book to teach them about the transgendered.

The book, "I am Jazz," is the true story of a gender-confused boy, who is 14. 

Transgender man (MassResistance pic)Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says a school guidance counselor in Kittery Point, Maine was reading the book to students ages 5 to 9, including kindergarteners. 

She predicts such a scene could eventually come to every school nationwide if homosexual activists are allowed to do so.

"They want to get these images into schools in order to transform the beliefs and the feelings of other people's children," Higgins claims.

The book was read to students in 20 classrooms at Mitchell Primary School, the Sea Coast Online reported.

School administrators predictably apologized to parents for not advising them of the book-reading. But the school's own counseling blog highlighted "I am Jazz" with a photo of the book, and posted the comment below:

Some may think primary school students are too young to worry about addressing issues surrounding gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students. Not so, experts say. It’s never too early to begin teaching children about respecting differences...

The same Mitchell School Counseling blog post also included a link to the Trans Youth Equality Foundation. 

A second blog post is entitled, "Supporting gender nonconforming children." 

'Genderbread' Planned Parenthood propaganda"Gender roles pressure children to conform in ways that might limit their full potential," someone, presumably a school counselor, wrote on the blog. 

OneNewsNow has reported on California parents who were upset that their junior high students were taught about "agender, "bi-gender," and "two spirit. They were taught using a "Genderbread Person" courtesy of Planned Parenthood. 

Higgins says parents must be aware of this movement, and question administrators and school board members to prevent this from happening in their schools. 

"And if we don't, we're going to pass on such oppression and such suffering to the next generation, and the generation after that," she tells OneNewsNow.
