Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"The content is valuable, and the sidebars are quite informative."

"A useful book that could generate much productive discussion about homophobia and its direct effect on the lives of middle school students."
Children's Literature - Amy McLaughlin
What does it mean to be homophobic? How can you tell if you or someone around you is a homophobe? How can you educate others on homosexuality in order to reduce homophobia? These questions and more are all answered in this short, concise workbook. In this installment of the “Deal With It” series, Johnson tackles the tough topics of homosexuality and homophobia. Homophobia is examined from all angles, including information for those who are targeted, witnesses, or those who may be homophobic. It also presents the many forms of homophobia, including examples of violent and non-violent homophobia. It also addresses the fact that individuals may face this discrimination from adults in their lives as well as peers. Not only are there definitions of terms and concise information, but also quizzes, scenarios and comic strips to help readers understand the topic. With a table of contents and list of resources for further learning, this book is easy to read and navigate. It would make a great workbook for late elementary school, middle school, or high school classrooms. A guidance counselor could also find the material useful as a reference for their students. Reviewer: Amy McLaughlin; Ages 9 up.
