Reviews

★  This picture book/early reader hybrid captures the playful, innocent spirit of two friends testing the boundaries of the world around them as Teresa’s spontaneity encourages Max outside of his comfort zone.

—Kirkus Starred Review

In Max on the Farm, we find Max, a White transgender boy, going on an overnight trip to a farm with his class, including his friend Teresa, a darker-skinned girl. Max likes playing with Teresa, even though she’s willing to flout rules to find adventure and doesn’t mind getting into (mild) trouble as a consequence. She also bends gender norms—she likes to get “really dirty” while playing outdoors and tends to be the leader in their adventures. Max is more hesitant, but ultimately has fun during their gentle mischief.… I absolutely love this book and its predecessors. The Max and Friends series should be on every elementary school and children’s library bookshelf as well as in home libraries—and with more and more television networks offering LGBTQ-inclusive children’s shows, is it too much to hope that we’ll see Max, Teresa, and Steven on our screens someday?
