Jacob’s New Dress by Sarah & Ian Hoffman
This is a story about a little boy who enjoys wearing dresses and the difficulties he (and his family) face with this decision. Emily, a little girl in his class, likes the dresses Jacob likes to wear and Jacob and his mother have fun together sewing a special dress for him to wear. However, another little boy, Christopher, doesn’t think boys are allowed to wear dresses.
The grown ups are understanding and have realistic responses, while still being very kind to Jacob. The story doesn’t say that everyone will accept Jacob’s decision, but it shows how he finds his courage to dress however he wants to.
It’s a really nice little story and it’s nice to see representation for gender non-conforming kids. <3
