A great companion read to 
The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be by New York Times bestselling author Joanna Gaines, illustrated by Julianna Swaney, the beloved lead character from Jacob's New Dress, which is one of The American Library Association's top 100 banned books of the last decade, is back in an encouraging story about gender expression. When Jacob goes to the boys’ bathroom he is chased out because the boys think he looks like a girl because of the way he is dressed. His classmate, Sophie, has a similar experience when she tries to go to the girls’ bathroom. When their teacher finds out what happened, Jacob and Sophie, with the support administration, lead change at their school as everyone discovers the many forms of gender expression and how to treat each other with respect.

Authors: Sarah Hoffman and Ian Hoffman and Illustrator: Chris Case

“The students set out to create new, inclusive bathroom signs: ‘I have to pee, so let me be!’ one reads. Ms. Reeves just might be the real star in the story, as she models how limiting traditional views of gender can be.”Publishers Weekly

“Their teacher's lesson shows that there are more than two ways to dress—not all boys wear short hair, and not all girls wear long hair or dresses. Even their own classroom represents a spectrum of expressions.”Kirkus Reviews
