About the authors: quoting from p. 251 of the book, "Stephanie Brill has provided education and support to countless families with gender-nonconforming children across the United States and Canada. . .[S]he cofounded Gender Spectrum Education and training in 2007. Stephanie cofounded and facilitates the support group at Children's Hospital Oakland for parents of gender-variant and transgender children." She has written two other books. Quoting from p. 252 of the book, "Rachel Pepper is currently Coordinator of LGBT Studies at Yale University. She is coauthor of [one other book] and author of the 'Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy for Lesbians.' She contributes to many magazines and newspapers. . ." Peggy O'Mara, editor and publisher of 'Mothering' said of this work, "The Transgender Child' is a ground-breaking book. It is a sophisticated and sympathetic look at a world unknown to many of us. Families with transgender children often suffer because of society's prejudices. This book opens a door and shines a light on members of society who deserve the compassion and understanding of us all." This work includes chapters on medical issues and legal issues to consider for transgender children and has many resources including books, movies, websites and hotlines.

This is a well-written and informative book about transgendered children written for parents, educators and therapists. Containing practical advice on parenting issues, finding help in the mental health community, advocacy, and medical issues, this self-help book advises parents on how to accept their child emotionally and to support their child with others. As a child psychologist, I found this to be an excellent primer on the needs of transgendered kids. I particularly enjoyed the vignettes of trans children described throughout as it explained the authors' points clearly. The current medical options available, such as using horomones to delay the onset of puberty and then to use opposite sex gender horomones to develop the child into the desired gender (and avoiding development into the birth gender) was fascinating. I did not know that starting horomones pre-puberty could help the child avoid additional surgeries later on. Though occassionally repetitive on some of the points (as all self-help books tend to do) it contains good information for anyone who works with or has a transgendered child. ( )
