A wonderful book to introduce a unit on respecting differences and challenging traditional gender roles! 'Jacob's New Dress' tackles this topic in a thoughtful and realistic way. I really liked the way Jacob is portrayed as accepting of himself, and the way he's shown to peacefully confront his critic without excluding him or retaliating in any way.

Fantastic book for a sensitive topic.

Definitly a book-with-a-message. Books-with-a-message are usually less effective (and more heavy handed) at conveying said message than books that are just really good stories. This was still a lovely and timely and well handled story. I also appreciated the bit at the end about the authors' real-life gender non-conformist son.
