The Transgender Child "For any parent or professional entering this world for the first time, this book is indispensable. Beyond providing a necessary lifeboat for parents, it helps the professional develop empathy for those who are growing up transgender and the families that love them." —Journal of the American Academy of Child&Adolescent Psychiatry "Pepper and the mothers in this book have created what will certainly be an invaluable resource for countless parents and future parents. In that, perhaps they have made the world just a little bit better for transgender people themselves." —Windy City Times

Stephanie Brill does an amazing job of detailing so many things that people need to know about gender variant and transgender children. This publication is an excellent tool for anyone who is the educator, medical professional, coach, grandparent, or parent of a transgender child, or for anyone who works with children.
