ABC of Gender Identity is a valuable resource for adults to use when introducing the gender spectrum to young readers and initiating conversations about gender.
Rachel Simon, psychotherapist and author of The Every Body Book
ABC of Gender Identity is a colorful and playful way to explore gender with young people. It's a great way to begin and facilitate conversations about the expansiveness of gender, and it provides a foundation for acceptance of diversity of identities. Whether this book is used as a tool for self-identification or as encouragement for broadening general understanding, it would make a great addition to an inclusive library.

Brook Pessin-Whedbee, author of Who Are You?:The Kid's Guide to Gender Identity
Brilliant! ABC of Gender Identity is a book that will open minds for children and adults alike. Devika Dalal defines a rich array of terms from cisgender to venngender, with a diverse crew of characters perched upon the letters to keep kids company along the way. The alphabet is not long enough to include all the ways kids might describe themselves, but the guide at the end is sure to help any adult begin a lifelong conversation with their little one.
