Reviews

Selected as a 2020 NCSS/CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People

"The students set out to create new, inclusive bathroom signs: 'I have to pee, so let me be!' one reads. Ms. Reeves just might be the real star in the story, as she models how limiting traditional views of gender can be." --Publishers Weekly

"Their teacher's lesson shows that there are more than two ways to dress--not all boys wear short hair, and not all girls wear long hair or dresses. Even their own classroom represents a spectrum of expressions." --Kirkus Reviews

"So many, many people need to read this book. Kids adults, politicians, administrators--there is not one person in this world that doesn't need to digest and ponder the less of this sweet, simple, and very necessary (unfortunately) book." --Kiss the Book

"Like the first book about Jacob, the message is about acceptance. Simple lyrical writing introduces the setting and the characters from the opening lines: 'The carpet was warm. The bunnies were funny. Jacob and Sophie loved library time.' And the message is vital, especially for this young age group. The Hoffman's book comes from their hearts." --Oregon Coast Youth Book Preview Center

"Kids need the tools to understand gender nonconforming peers. With books like this, minds open, perspectives blossom and everyone has more choices. Sophie and Jacob's teacher is paying attention and sees an opportunity to create a more inclusive classroom and school where everyone's differences are celebrated. A progressive book that is forward thinking and acting to solve problems with new solutions."
