Brook Pessin-Whedbee, author of Who Are You? The Kids Guide to Gender Identity
With her handstands, towers and lavender flowers, Phoenix inspires brave young people to share their stories and be proud of who they are. She also shows us what can happen when communities come together to celebrate diversity.
Diane Ehrensaft, Ph.D. author of The Gender Creative Child and Gender Born, Gender Made, director of Mental Health, Child and Adolescent Gender Center
Someday we'll live in a world where any child can wear a dress with freedom and delight, but until then, Phoenix Goes to School is a brilliant must-read for every child who either is a gender creative or transgender child or wants to be their ally.
Gavin Grimm, youth activist
This book is not only a delightful tale about being yourself straight from the mouth of a child living her truth, but it is also a critical tool for trans children, their families, educators, and anyone else who seeks to better understand the lives and realities of transgender youth. An essential to any affirming bookshelf.
