Who decides? Jacob’s Room to Choose (Hoffman) #JacobsRoomToChoose #NetGalley

This book is part of the series that is sponsored by the American Psychological Association. It was written by the parents of a gender non-conforming child who have first hand experience with the topic being addressed here.

The book tells the story of Jacob and Sophie along with their many classmates and wise teacher/librarian. It presents the dilemma that the two friends face when they need to use the restroom at school. With the help of a sensitive adult, the students move away from stereotypes and do a poster project for gender neutral facilities.

This book can provide a way for educators to introduce a topic that may seem difficult but can be addressed with sensitivity. Parents of children and children who feel different at times will most likely find that the book resonates for them.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in return for an honest review.
