"You could send your kid to college and graduate school, and years of therapy, to learn how to lovingly come to terms with their gender and sexuality. Or you could simply read this book with them - it's that thorough, and that good." Kate Bornstein, author of My New Gender Workbook
"Emphasizing the importance of trust, respect, justice, and joy, as well as open communication, it's a thoughtful and affirming exploration of relationships, gender identity, and growing sexual awareness." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Sex Is a Funny Word is a book that brilliantly reminds us of our shared humanity. Whether you are LGBTQIA or any other letter in the alphabet (including U for undecided), this book contains everything you ever wanted the kids in your life to know about sex." James Lecesne, Co-founder of The Trevor Project
"I read Sex is a Funny Word with my 10 year old daughter who immediately got it! She saw herself, family, and friends in the characters. It's an amazing resource and makes what could be a difficult conversation, quite easy. I wish I had this book as a child." --Aiesha Turman, Founder and Executive Director, The Black Girl Project
"Sex is a Funny Word is nothing short of revolutionary. Cory Silverberg and Fiona Smyth's newest book is brilliant in its approach to giving caregivers and educators the tools they need to talk to kids about their bodies. Not only is it "the first trans-inclusive book for kids," but it also uses inclusionary language and diverse representation across race, ability, gender, and sexuality, to hone in on the most important aspects of discussing sex and bodies with kids aged 8-12." --BuzzFeed LGBT, "This Children s Book About Sex And Gender Is A Total Game-Changer"

He subsequently signed a three-book deal with Seven Stories Press to produce a series of inclusive children's books about gender and sexuality. Silverberg lives in New York City.FIONA SMYTH is a Toronto-based painter, illustrator, and cartoonist. Her first graphic novel, The Never Weres, was published by Annick Press in 2011.
