Product description

Review

." . .a warmly illustrated picture book meant to comfort both boys who are gender nonconforming and their parents. . .Jacob's mom's look of concern when he first asks about the dress is poignant, and his dad's words of acceptance ('Well, it's not what I would wear, but you look great') could easily serve as a model for fathers in similar positions." Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2014

" . . . an ideal companion for families and educators: upbeat yet realistic, astute about peer dynamics, and blessedly lacking in a sermonizing Big Moment." Publishers Weekly, January 17, 2014

"The warm cartoon illustrations convey the mood well and offer readers visual clues to the cruelty, teasing, and struggle with self-acceptance that can occur when children are different from their peers. Purchase this one to encourage discussions of gender, identity, and self-confidence." School Library Journal, February 1, 2014
