Charlie’s is thrilled to have Sarah and Ian Hoffman visit us once again, this time to read their new book: Jacob’s Room to Choose:

Jacob, the beloved character who made national headlines by wearing a dress to school, is back in an encouraging story about gender expression. When Jacob goes to the boys’ bathroom, he is chased out—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 of the administration, lead change at their school as everyone discovers the many forms of gender expression and how to treat each other with respect.

Praise for Jacob’s Room to Choose:

“So many, many people need to read this book. Kids adults, politicians, administrators—there is not one person in this world that doesn’t need to digest and ponder the lesson of this sweet, simple, and very necessary (unfortunately) book.” -Kiss the Book

“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
