"10,000 Dresses" and Other Books for Young People

As the Safe Schools Coordinator here at PFLAG I get many questions about good books, movies, and materials that we can offer to schools. In our new safe schools booklet, The Top Ten Ways to Make Schools Safer…For All Students we highlight books, movies and programs that are age appropriate and great for schools.

Today I read this review of a new children's book on Pam’s House Blend and I wanted to share it with you. The truth is I personally have already bought this book, and given it as a present . It is a wonderful story that lets you see the world through the eyes of a gender variant child.

So if you need a present for a child, a school library or a book drive… check it out. And if you would like to talk about book idea for your school please contact me and I would love to help you find appropriate books for the schools in your community.
